by admin on April 12, 2011

When the writing and editing portions of a project are completed, and often even ahead of the completion, authors must decide what format they would like to utilize to share/submit their work. Many authors still use classic publishing companies to print and distribute paper copies of their work. Other authors desire to self-publish, taking ownership of many or all choices about their work’s performance. Finally, some authors want to publish online for a combination of factors. Some take online classes, or do research that needs to be published where many can access it, some work for online publications,and some authors just are looking to publish more than one item quickly.

Publishing online is a growingtrend in whichmany authors are taking part. This blog will explore some types of authors who might decide on online publishing as opposed to the more classic methods.

Thereisa growing number of repositories for research articles on the Internet, which allows the writer the ability to get his findings in to the hands of interested academics or the public much more quickly. Some web journals are moving to provide their publications completely on the Internet,entirely foregoing the standard paper journal. Others are offering their journals both on papers and online.

Nonfiction or Fiction Authors: There are various reasons that writers have when choosingto publish online rather than utilizing conventional publishing organizations.Some authors feel that their books only have a restricted audience if the topic is highly specialized, and this may be the situation with some types of nonfiction books. Other writers have papers about fictional topics that might only garner a narrow following. Also, some writers, both fiction and nonfiction, write about extremely controversial topics that they feel may have a better possibility of being published online.
