Peter explains his reasons for choosing to publish his series with Cambridge Scholars Publishing and emphasises our commitment to an author-centric approach, allowing scholars to present their work as authentically as possible:
“I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the ease I find in working with Cambridge Scholars Publishing. We are now up to volume three in press and volume four is underway. Since my first interaction with Cambridge Scholars, every person that I have been in contact with has been so helpful and timely in our work together. Knowing that there is always advice at hand, yet also having a deal of academic freedom has been a refreshing experience. This allows each volume to have its own unique flavor, ensuring that we remain true to our own discipline and the many idiosyncrasies that it entails. I always feel that my knowledge is valued and remains at the forefront of what the final product looks like. I am so happy that we started this endeavor and look forward to further additions to the series.”
