Dear Lisa Spangenberg , While researching publishable academic papers at the Library of University of California, Los Angeles University, I came across a reference to a work entitled “The games fairies play: Otherworld intruders in medieval literary narratives”. KG specializes in the publication of theses and dissertations.
Recommendation: Do not do any business with Lambert Academic Publishing.
Newly minted University of Pittsburgh Master’s and Doctorate holders may receive an e-mail from Lambert Academic Publishing, offering to publish your thesis or dissertation as a book.
In this and all other cases, be sure you are satisfied that the advantages of publishing, such as visibility and recognition for your work, outweigh any loss of control over the content.
If you publish with Lambert, your thesis will be published without editing and with virtually no format change from the final version approved by the University.You will be encouraged to buy a number of copies yourself in order to lower the price of the book for other buyers.If you are considering publishing articles based on your thesis or dissertation work, see the HSLS Scholarly Communication Guide for information on selecting a publisher, open access publication, your rights as an author, and more.If you sign with Lambert, you relinquish all rights to future publication, for all or parts of your thesis.Publishers generally require authors to sign copyright agreements, which vary in what rights the author retains of further use.In fact, the company has a gaggle of “acquisition editors” who search the web all day and night and then send spam emails to their unlucky targets who have recently completed a dissertation.LAP is an imprint of VDM Publishing, which is headquartered in Saarbrücken, Germany.Why have I spent all this time going on about VDM/LAP? Simply because I noticed a few of them popped up on the publication lists of faculty members at UAEU. Perhaps the best description and analysis of Lambert Academic Publishing is the one written by Christopher Collins of Toronto, Ontario in his blog.He concludes “Steer clear of this company,” and I agree.
