An Invite From Dr. Doukas, Editor for the Finance and Financial Management Collection

As a collection editor for Business Expert Press, in Finance and Financial Management, I would like to invite you to consider publishing your books with the company. I agreed to consult with this relatively new publisher because it has what I believe is an interesting and forward-looking publication model that may interest you. I am seeking interested and qualified authors to help us build our collection in all areas of finance and financial management. You may be interested in contributing a volume to our growing collection; or you may simply be interested in learning about our company and our plans for the collection.

Books published by Business Expert Press—nearly 200 to date, with 250 more in development– are concise (between 75 and 150 pages), applied and reasonably priced. We publish books across the entire range of the business curriculum. These books are sometimes narrow in scope but generally offer more depth on the subjects they treat than other publications; or they may provide an essentials treatment of broader subjects. Potential beneficiaries of these books include advanced business students, students in executive or EMBA programs, and business professionals who are seeking either to acquire new skills or refresh and update their knowledge of existing ones.

Any of several motivations might induce you to contribute a book to this collection including having available self-produced, commercially published material for your own course or consulting practice. Your BEP book can also serve as a value-adding “underlined item” on your vita. And because of our numerous distribution partners, both domestically and internationally, the opportunities for royalty revenue can be significant.

These are just some of the reasons why authors choose to write for Business Expert Press. We find however that for many their primary motivator is the absence of interference and the degree of intellectual freedom that the company affords them. If you visit our Collection page you will be struck by the range of topics covered in the books the company publishes. We continue to seek high quality authors with good ideas for books. If you fit that profile and have a manuscript or simply an idea for a manuscript that you’d like to discuss with me please send me an email at:
jdoukas@odu.edu

I will explain how to submit a proposal for consideration and answer questions you may have about the company and its publishing model. Or if wish to prepare a proposal for submission you can access our proposal guidelines here. We look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,
John A. Doukas
