A BETTER PUBLISHING MODEL
FOR ACADEMIC AUTHORS
The existing academic publishing model is broken, with traditional commercial publishers charging excessive prices for books or ridiculous book publishing charges to publish Open Access books.
Academics or their supporting institutions are poorly paid for their content. Profit margins are strongly skewed towards the publisher, with crumbs for the author and/or their employers. Submission to publication times are far too lengthy and service and marketing support insufficient.
Besides the lack of editorial assistance, marketing support, and a complete absence of urgency, traditional academic publishers are now often viewed as cherishing profits over the advancement of knowledge, and accommodate their shareholders over their authors.
THIS IS WHY WE NEED GLASSTREE
Glasstree challenges the traditional academic publishing model by providing academics with the flexibility to be in complete control of their content, and to engage personalized support services via Glassleaf. By accelerating time to market and reversing an exploitative revenue model, Glasstree allows academics and their supporting institutions to actually profit from sales of their work.How it works
