VDM Verlag Dr. Mueller was founded in 2002; the main aim of the company was to provide more openness in the sphere of academic publishing. Today still, within all our services we keep openness in mind.
We have removed all barriers that at a time were preventing authors to reach their desired audience, and made sure that publishing scientific and research projects are totally hassle free. One of our first outbreaks was to provide free of charge publishing.
Just like in the Music, TV or Radio industry the face of academic publishing has been changing very fast, publishers are facing new challenges as their audience is shifting to alternative media. Conventional publishers are being brought under assault by the latest technological developments; less and less people tend to visit physical bookstores.
At VDM Verlag Dr. Mueller we incorporated these technology developments to our business model and which today enables us to open the gate of the new publishing era to our authors.
Not only do we offer free of charge publishing to our authors but we undertake all marketing efforts for our books to reach their right audience. We are focused on accessibility and availability. With our new affiliation to the online bookstore Morebooks! authors can now imagine their books being available all around the world quicker than before.
The use of Print To Order, one of the latest technology available in the publishing industry, has also removed any geographical barrier that may have hindered the spread of academic projects in the past. To be a successful author one has to get his book known and purchased by potential readers. This is where VDM Verlag Dr. Mueller steps in, connecting authors to their readers.
Today, we are launching our blog as another platform for interaction with authors and for the distribution of scientific knowledge to a greater audience. Our blog will feature a category of interview with authors as well as latest news of publishing and academic scene. Recently, blogging has been seen as the real conversation with everyone and this is where we want to be, right in the conversation with our authors.
VDM Verlag Dr. Mueller is leading the change to the new face of the academic publishing and our blog is a means to get our authors along.
