Warning: rogue publishers

who offer to publish your thesis for free

27 February 2015

After graduation or obtaining a doctorate people often receive mail from publishers, offering to publish their Master’s or PhD thesis for free.

They are usually subsidiary companies of VDM Publishing, such as Lambert Academic Publishing.

The Library advises you not to enter into an agreement with them, because that way you will lose copyright. You will then be unable to publish (parts of) the work elsewhere.
