Press Sues Librarian Over Negative Evaluation
Press Sues Librarian Over Negative Evaluation
In 2010, Dale Askey was a tenured associate professor at Kansas State University (K-State) when he made a blog post about Edwin Mellen Press. Since removed from the blog, but available via the Internet Archive, the post called Mellen a "dubious publisher," saying that the press occasionally publishes a worthy title and is not technically a vanity publisher, but that "much of what they publish is simply second-class scholarship."
