How an eBook Makes You an Expert in Your Field

June 02, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 140

In previous years, it used to be that an aspiring writer hadn't "made it" in the writing/publishing industry until he or she had at least one book published. However, that process takes a long time. The book must first go through an editor, then back to the author for changes if necessary, then back to the editor and then finally to the publisher for approval.

In today's fast-paced and more independent world, it is easier than ever to publish a book. Electronic books, often referred to as "eBooks", are more popular than ever. With the recent release of the iPad, kindle, and other tablet-like electronic devices, people can take their reading materials with them wherever they go. Instead of carrying around six books in their suitcase or purse, their tablet electronic device can store and pull up their favorite books electronically. The recent release of these tablet electronic devices has also caused an increase in the popularity of reading books as a hobby. With just the touch of a finger, people can turn the page in whichever book they are reading electronically. Books are now more portable than ever, as classic novels and everything in between are now being converted into electronic format for easier portability.

So who publishes eBooks?

There are some publishing companies that will still work with authors to copyright their materials, but the honest answer is that anyone can publish an eBook.

Let's examine how an eBook makes you an expert in your field.

Well, most paperback books are at least 150 pages in length each. eBooks are more portable and the standards are a bit less rigid when it comes to electronic media. However, for the eBook to be seen a reputable source of information, and to be used as a possible reference, the amount of page numbers should at least be in the double digits. For those authors who are looking to publish a more reputable and scholarly eBook filled with expert knowledge in their field, they might consider citing sources from research studies, and other scholarly works in their eBook. For example, if a medical doctor decides to write an eBook on the influence of processed foods in our diet that contribute to making us overweight, he should cite his sources where that specific research comes from. Government websites such as the Food and Drug Administration, and scholarly journals like the New England Journal of Medicine are all good places to start conducting and citing research. Typically for someone to publish pages in the double digits on a particular topic, they have at least a few years of experience on the subject to be able to write at length about it. Sometimes publishing companies are also involved in the publishing of the eBook and can speak to the author's credibility.

eBooks are a great tool for any writer or business professional to "get his feet wet" in his chosen field. The majority of college professor's work involves research. In fact, they must regularly publish articles in scholarly journals, so eBooks are a great way for them and others to gain exposure in their field.
