      Quality Academic Publishing Still Strong at Gorgias Press Despite

      Piscataway, NJ-June 1, 2009. Gorgias Press LLC, an academic publisher in
      the humanities, establishes a program for assisting scholars to publish
      their academic manuscripts during the recession.

      academic publishers are reducing the number of books they plan to
      publish or asking authors for financial support so as to make viable the
      production of their books. Gorgias, however, has actually increased its
      production of academic books. In fact, during the first six months of

      Scholars whose books were initially accepted by reputable presses, but
      have been turned down because of the economy, or who have been asked now
      to subsidize the publication, can turn to Gorgias. Publishing with

      proof that the book was initially accepted at another reputable academic
      publisher. Gorgias will still go through its editorial review processes
      to ensure quality but will guarantee results within three months.
      Submissions are sent via email to submissions@.... Gorgias
      publishes monographs, text-books, reference works, series, and journals.
