URF Publishers (United Research Forum Publishers) is a start-up publishing house passionate about working with the global academic community to promote scholarly research to the world. We focus on serving our authors while ensuring a fully robust and objective peer-review process, publishing standards and editorial integrity.
All chapters/Monographs/eBooks are peer-reviewed by independent highly qualified academic editors and reviewers with expertise in a field appropriate for the submission.
Manuscripts/Articles which are previously published in a reputed journal and republished without any modifications as a book chapter (Provided copyright-terms of the journal permit for republication) in our eBook for better reach are directly shortlisted for publication, considering that a thorough peer-review process is already done at the journal.
The book concept is first developed by an Internal Book Commissioning Editor (URF Publishers Staff) and an External Editor, an expert in the relevant field, is assigned for the eBook. The book is now open for submissions. The authors are invited by the Internal Handling Editor to submit a fully drafted manuscript, which will then be automatically subject to a plagiarism check prior to being passed to the External Editor who coordinates the peer review. Once the review has been completed, the External Editor passes on all peer review reports and communicates their recommendation to the Internal Handling Editor, who communicates with the authors of their decision
We publish print/digital Books, Monographs, and Edited volumes in various fields of Science, Technology, and Medicine. Authors can choose to keep the Book open access to readers or for Sale.
