In addition to review copies that we send to journals, we do quite a lot of journal advertising. We advertise in over fifty journals currently. Our journal advertising program, and the journals that we work with, is constantly evolving. We are always glad to consider additional journals with authors. Sometimes authors prefer to have individual advertising of their book in a particular journal, such as a half- or full-page ad, and what we normally do in these instances is to participate with authors on a shared-cost basis.

If an author desires to have their book sent to a conference, we'll try and make arrangements to have books available along with flyers. We send many of our titles to conferences all around the country every year through private book displayers, such as Conference Book Service, Academia Book Exhibits and Association Book Exhibit, as well as directly to meetings that hold their own book exhibits.

Authors will oftentimes want direct mail sent to perhaps a specialized list of instructors or schools for course adoption consideration, and we'll contact instructors in this manner.

We have a full catalog printed every year containing all our publications and this is distributed to a select mailing of our customers as well as to those who request to receive it. We also have other mailings, including topics of interest by category, to those who purchase book titles in that relevant area. Once a month, we have a new books list that is emailed to all our customers. Many of these flyers are sent to our customers in their book shipments as well as included in our customers’ monthly statements.
