A selection of self-published academic titles 

Academic writers are already turning to self publishing

In all fields, from scientific disciplines through social sciences and economics, to the arts and humanities, academics worldwide have begun to discover the advantages of self publishing. Sometimes the choice of self publishing is a choice between self-publishing and traditional publishing; but for many academic authors the choice is more radical than that; it is a choice between self publishing and not getting published at all, or self publishing and costly vanity publishing.
   Whatever the author's personal reasons for choosing self publishing, the results are the same: books and monographs that can be discovered by readers all over the world.  With specialist niche scientific publications, the choice of self publishing can also mean the difference between having a work that is published at a prohibitively expensive cover price by a major scientific publisher, or having it published for a small fraction of the price on a self-publishing platform.
