VISION: To offer doctoral scholars an award winning publishing solution to position themselves as an expert in their field.
Goal: To publish an anthology of the works of multiple academic doctoral authors in one themed volume.
Mission: To get research off the coffee table, out of the Ivory Tower, and into the hands of business owners and entrepreneurs.

Q: Myth #1: Why do I have to pay to publish?
A: Publishing costs money. The reason one doesn’t have to pay to publish in a peer-reviewed journal is that the journal often uses the proceeds from the sale of the journal to fund the journal. The journal makes money from your writing; you don’t.
Q: Myth #2: Paying for publishing detracts from my credibility, doesn’t it?
A: No. Publishing is a business like any other, where the goal is to make money. The question is who is making the money? You get what you pay for. Peer-reviewed journal model: The publisher pays for the costs, you don’t. The publisher owns your material, you don’t. The publisher makes royalties, you don’t. The publisher has control, you don’t.
Who pays for the publishing has nothing to do with the quality of the work published. So long as the process includes a peer-reviewed process (open, single, or double blind), there is a quality mechanism in place. If your article is based on IRB approved research through an accredited university (doctoral work or post doc work), the quality of the outcomes has already been vetted.
Q: Myth #3: When I publish in a journal or in a book, don’t I automatically own my intellectual property?
- A: No. Check the fine print of your contract. Most of the time in a traditional peer-reviewed journal, the journal owns the copyright to your writing, not you. Be sure to file for your own copyright with the U.S. Copyright Office.Follow the money. Those who own their copyright, get to keep their money.
