Academic Publisher
ACADEMIC PUBLISHING is the subfield of publishing which distributes academic research and scholarship. Most academic work is published in academic journal article, book or thesis form. The part of academic written output that is not formally published but merely printed up or posted on the Internet is often called "grey literature ". Most scientific and scholarly journals, and many academic and scholarly books, though not all, are based on some form of peer review or editorial refereeing to qualify texts for publication. Peer review quality and selectivity standards vary greatly from journal to journal, publisher to publisher, and field to field. Most established academic disciplines have their own journals and other outlets for publication, although many academic journals are somewhat interdisciplinary , and publish work from several distinct fields or subfields

Books have taken other forms, such as scrolls , leaves on a string, or strips tied together; and the pages have been of parchment , vellum , papyrus , bamboo slips , palm leaves , silk , wood , and other materials.
