Meet our Authors: Tetiana Dombrovan - September 2018
12 September 2018
Tetiana Dombrovan is Professor at Odessa I.I. Mechnikov National University, Ukraine, where she teaches English grammar, the history of the English language, and linguistic synergetics. She received her PhD in the grammatical classification of the English verb and her DSc in the synergetic modelling of English language development from Odessa I.I. Mechnikov National University in 1996 and 2014, respectively.
In February 2018, Tetiana published her first book with Cambridge Scholars Publishing, An Introduction to Linguistic Synergetics. The book is an explication of a new multidisciplinary approach to language studies that views human language as an open, dynamic, non-linear, and self-organising system.
Special emphasis is laid on a variety of change rates on different language levels, and as a result the book sheds new light on language development and permits better descriptions of phase transitions, or reconfigurations, of language as a synergetic megasystem.
Tetiana describes her experience of working with Cambridge Scholars, having previously published a number of books with other publishers:
“I would like to express my deepest gratitude to Cambridge Scholars Publishing for their warm welcome, politeness, and patience throughout the whole process of turning my manuscript into a wonderful book. It was a great pleasure to work with CSP, indeed, from the very beginning. The team are dedicated, helpful, understanding, and extremely professional, making each stage of the publication process extremely pleasant and seamless. I am sincere in saying that the publishing process has been beyond all of my expectations, as I have already published three books with other publishers. I must say, CSP is the best and I am happy to recommend Cambridge Scholars Publishing to all of my colleagues. I wish all the best to CSP and look forward to further cooperation.”

Meet our Authors: Kleio Akrivou - September 2018
12 September 2018
Kleio Akrivou is Associate Professor of Business Ethics and Organisational Behaviour at the University of Reading’s Henley Business School in the United Kingdom. She is also Visiting Scholar at the University of Navarra’s institutes for Business and Humanism and Culture and Society in Spain. She holds a PhD with a cross-disciplinary focus on moral psychology, adult learning and development, and behavioural science from Case Western Reserve University in the United States. Kleio’s current work focuses on non-representational theories of knowledge and how to approach and understand the self and action, with the aim of integrating moral psychology with classical philosophical works on the self, knowing, and life.
In May of this year Kleio published The Inter-Processual Self: Towards a Personalist Virtue Ethics Proposal for Human Agency with Cambridge Scholars, alongside her co-authors José Víctor Orón Semper and Germán Scalzo. The book showcases her current interdisciplinary research, defending a personalist approach to ethics through an analysis of self and action.
Kleio reflects on her experience of working with Cambridge Scholars on the book:
"My co-authors and I worked very harmoniously with CSP in the production of our book. I found that all steps of the work involved (from the final editing of the book to typesetting, cover design, and marketing) to be of high quality in both the process and in terms of the eventual outcome. I am impressed with the discrete albeit respectful way we have been supported in marketing and communicating the new book to various audiences. Academics in various disciplines may work for years or even decades to bring a theoretically rigorous and practically relevant new idea or theory to life. The work we do is so dense and intensive that we often lack the experience or a tacit understanding of how to increase our visibility and reach different audiences who may truly benefit by becoming aware of our work. I was impressed by how CSP has been an immensely valuable collaborative partner in this effort of ours, and I am very thankful to all CSP team members for their personal work and the ongoing support they provide to us."
