Publoris is a new service for academic self-publishing geared toward the needs of young academics. Developed in a partnership between De Gruyter and MyBestseller, the service allows authors to publish their manuscripts quickly, easily, and inexpensively, and is thus an ideal complement to traditional routes for publication.
Publoris is offering a plagiarism check feature as well as print-on-demand, ebook, and Open Access publishing options. MyBestseller is providing the technology and is also managing distribution and billing. The author can determine the price for his or her publication, and receives a transparent share of the proceeds from the very first copy sold. Customers also receive a dedicated author's homepage.
