Getting It Published: The Pleasures and Pitfalls of Self-Publishing.
Wahab, Shaista; Boyer, Janice
Although many methods of publishing scholarly work are available to the author, self-publishing is sometimes the most appropriate avenue to provide the work to the intended audience particularly if the scope of the material is of interest to a limited number of scholars. Topics include: copyright issues; cataloging data; factors influencing the decision to self-publish; compiling the bibliography and selecting software to compile the bibliography; selecting and working with a publisher; determining the target audience; marketing and advertising the book; and accounting procedures. These phases of the process are described for the publication of the "Arthur Paul Afghanistan Collection Bibliography, Volume 1: Pashto and Dari Titles," a title self-published by the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
