We, on our part will be sending alerts to over 3000 scientists working in your area of research internationally to make your work more visible through our individual book alerting program. The copyright vests with you.

These charges include registered air-mailing charges.
How to Go about Editing a Book: The first thing to do is to formulate a topic of the book and then identify a set of possible authors for the various topics coming under the main topic. You may contact these researchers who you may know yourself- your friends, peers, other scientists, juniors or seniors- working in similar areas in your country or abroad. You may contact them yourself or if you send their names with e-mail IDs, we will do so on your behalf. Our experience shows that we have to contact at least 100-125 scientists, preferably from all over the word to get a good 6-7 manuscripts. Also, it is wise to invite second tier scientists rather than the very top ones, as the latter might already be involved in other projects and commitments.
