The links below provide access to information that will assist you in deciding whether or not to go down the path of this style of publishing, often called 'print-on-demand':

  • The Research at Curtin website has a section on copyright ownership which provides advice on who the copyright owner is.
  • The Copyright @ Curtin website contains a page for students who are the copyright owners of their work.  A section in that page provides advice for doctoral students who own the copyright of their thesis. 
  • Choose a publisher carefully, considering the points listed in the Chosse a publisher box in the Open access and espace@Curtin LibGuide.
  • Read the information in the Scholarly Open Access page about one particular publisher.
  • Some relevant information is also available on the University of Northampton's Research Support Hub Spotting the 'predatory' publisher blog.

In addition, Jeffrey Beall, a librarian at the University of Colorado, has produced a list of publishers that you might want to look into more closely if you are approached by one of them with an offer to publish your work.
