SUN MeDIA is known for publishing scholarly and general books as well as conference proceedings of the highest quality. Since our model is partly based on Print-to-Order / Print-on-Demand (PoD) digital technology, we are able to publish specialist research titles for niche markets, of which the first print-run might be relatively small. In other words, whether you’re an established academic author / researcher or first time author, rest assured that the customised, comprehensive variety of publishing options we offer will help bring your manuscript to life.
