This document talks about publishing through internet, by Dr. Hedaya Alasooly.
This report is after 2 weeks research. In this report I will talk about the publishing services in the internet, including journal publishing.
In fact the publishing issue was of special interest for me, because I wanted to find some way to publish my articles, and if possible sell them through internet. So, it was important for me to make special research in this area.
What I found that there is bulk number of publishing providers in the net, and it was not easy to find really free one. Most of these publishing providers can be found in the web site opublishing.info
This report is divided to different sections,
• Section 1: Lists some of the free publishing providers. All of these providers, (except Lulu.com) allows you only to post your article or abstract as form of blog. I did not go deeply on each of them (I just tried to post my article with them), so I don’t want to say which one is better, and I will leave this issue for you. Some of what I concluded
1. Lulu.com is the cheapest place to publish your book and promote it to search engines, as they don’t take any fees to publish your book but they take a commission and give you a royalty for each book sold. But the disadvantage, they don’t review or edit your book. I published my “Free VOIP Calls” report with them.
2. The other providers in this section allow you to post your article with them in a form of blog. I will not say in this quick work which one is better, but as I noted good thing in http://searchwarp.com/ is that they review your work before publishing, and the good thing in www.writing.com is that it has good writing environment and you can find your article listed easily in the www.writing.com search engine. You can go to my article web page with each provider to decide which provider will fit your need.
• Section 2: Lists some of the commercial publishing providers that I went through roughly in the net.
• Section 3: Gives idea about the publishing service, information in this section extracted from some sites in the internet..
In this quick work, I gave the reader the most existing choices for publishing in the internet. I see publishing is interesting area, and I recommend further research should be done in such area..

They give you here the opportunity to post your abstract and earn money if your abstract gained the attention of the readers. I used it to post my overview in Free (Voice Over IP) Calls. The problem, is that it does not allow you to define a keywords.
