Academics are motivated by one absolute imperative – to discover the truth. This motivation is undercut by exploitative publishers.
Publishing, the act of taking your content and making it final and available, is what Glasstree is all about. We are helping shape a new frontier for academics to share and promote their work.
What many academic authors fail to register is that upon transferring their content to a traditional publisher, they are also transferring the entire ownership and control of their work to a third party with very different motivations and a very different agenda to their own. There are serious implications in doing so, as many authors have discovered to their peril.
