History and Brief Description of your Publishing Program: Business Expert Press (BEP) was started in 2007 by David Parker, previously Editor- in-Chief for Global Business Publishing with Pearson Education. David believed that business students at the Bachelor and MBA levels were being overlooked by other publishers, and that concise, academically reliable, practical business books could be provided via libraries without complicated pricing models or leasing terms. BEP’s Digital Libraries (annual collections of 50-60 books covering topics ranging from accounting to governance to marketing to supply-chain management) are published without DRM or usage restrictions, and are purchased for a one-time fee, without any subscription or maintenance costs. Rich metadata, MARC records and DOIs are available for every book. Other features include automatic citations with copy/paste functions and text-to-speech capability for enhanced accessibility. Books are available through a variety of distribution channels, such as University Readers, Safari, XanEdu, Study.net, and Harvard Business Publishing; and can be downloaded to the Amazon Kindle, Sony Reader and the Apple iPad. Collection editors and authors are leaders in their ﬁelds from some of the top business schools in the country, such as the University of Southern California, Georgetown University, Arizona State University, Georgia Institute of Technology, the University of Wisconsin, Rutgers University, Case Western University, and the University of Miami.
