Дипломную работу – в тираж

Автор: Наталия Лазарева

“(…) Опубликовать работу, в том числе и в электронном виде, можно в стенах родного университета. В Гёттингенском университете (Georg-August-Universität Göttingen), например, существует база данных научных работ, написанных студентами вуза. “Публикация докторской диссертации обязательна в Германии, – рассказывает Айлин Дегенхардт (Eileen Degenhardt), сотрудница издательства Гёттингского университета. – Порядок защиты и точные требования к публикации прописываются факультетом вуза”. При желании, в базу данных можно поместить и выпускную работу на степень бакалавра или магистра.

“Однако в этом случае книга обычно остается на полке университетской библиотеки, – утверждает Бенуа Новель (Benoit Novel), управляющий директор издательства AV Akademikerverlag, – Издательский дом, в свою очередь, предлагает студентам сотрудничество с агентами по сбыту и книжными магазинами по всему миру”. Работают такие издательства обычно по технологии “Печать по требованию” или “Печать на заказ” (Print-on-demand, Print-to-Order), при которой новые экземпляры изготавливаются только после поступления заказа от клиента.

“Взяв книгу в руки, испытываешь огромную гордость, – делится впечатлениями Анна Морозова. – Ты видишь результат своей работы и понимаешь, что его смогут увидеть в такой форме и другие”. Однако самое главное в готовом издании – не собственная фамилия на обложке, а Международный стандартный книжный номер (International Standard Book Number, ISBN), который она получает. По нему книгу можно найти в торговых сетях, библиотеках или заказать онлайн.”

Arctic Host, Icy Visit
China and Falun Gong Face Off in Iceland. ISBN:978-3-8433-6513-0

Author: Herman Salton

“(…) It took the author, Herman Salton, eight years to write and publish this book, i.e. from 2002, when he began his inquiries after the events in Iceland, until 2010, when the book was released. This has given him a very long time to gather a lot of sources, some of which very good and reliable. (…) This book gives good information but there is always, especially because the author almost only takes Falun Gong‘s side in these matters, more than meets the eye. It is obvious though that the Chinese government has an enormous impact on the whole world, and tries to ban Falun Gong everywhere. At the same time, other governments are aware of the influence that the Chinese government has, and may be aware that their own actions are unjustifiable and therefore try to avoid discussions about these matters. They hide the truth and give no comments on their behavior. Salton´s book takes the reader on a journey all around the world, informing them about the things that not many people seem to know of and digs up sources and information that seem to have been somewhat hidden.”

The Symbolic Dimension: An Exploration of the Compositional Process

Author: Katia Tiutiunnik

“… The Symbolic Dimension by Katia Tiutiunnik—enter the arena of research on women’s music and add important knowledge to the field… Katia Tiutiunnik (b. 1967), a living Australian composer, offers a rigorously analytical and perceptive reading of the symbolic dimension of her own music and, in so doing, adds important information to the growing field of practice-based research. Her book, which is the published version of her doctoral thesis, includes detailed, structural analyses of selected works while at the same time pondering the extent to which her music arises out of her engagement with extra-musical symbolic forms. It elucidates the practices and processes of the composer-at-work and the ways in which she, as composer, interacts with her music and its immediate context. It explores the theoretical models that inform her approaches to composition; in particular, that of Jungian psychology and Nattiez’s musical semiology. Drawing on Nattiez, Tiutiunnik explains how the three dimensions of symbolic forms in this theory apply to music… Her book, as a whole, however, offers a comprehensive interpretation of her own music. In so doing, it is rich, primary source material for any scholar wishing to undertake further work on Tiutiunnik’s music… And while there is not yet much written about Tiutiunnik, given she is only just becoming established as a composer in the national and international worlds of concert music, her book fulfils the purpose of making her visible to those worlds.”

Seafood security in a changing climate

Author: Saleem Mustafa

… A key aspect of the book is emphasising that sustainable aquaculture is a multi-disciplinary activity comprised of scientific, social, economic and political dimensions and that management of aquaculture practice is a multi-faceted task requiring not only knowledge of the resource and the global market but also knowledge of the marine environment and the ecosystems that comprise it. (…) Overall, ‘Seafood Security in a Changing Climate’ is essential desktop reading for students, researchers, environmental managers, food economists, social scientists, bio-technologists and climatologists. It is effectively an indispensable handbook on ‘state-of-the-art’ aquaculture coupled with an informed projection of how sustainable aquaculture can be progressively achieved. It is very well written with concise explanations of the technical terms and language used and the essential scientific concepts are explained. The clarity and conciseness of the text together with the 150 references cited indicate the commanding depth and breadth of knowledge possessed by the author on aquaculture, much of which arising from his own research. This text confirms that aquaculture is a quantitative science with very significant social, economic, political and environmental interactions..

The Symbolic Dimension

Author: Katia Tiutiunnik

Katia Tiutiunnik, LAP author and a noted violist, has been interviewed by Bay Post and the Moruya Examiner (Batemans Bay and Moruya, New South Wales, Australia) about publishing her thesis with LAP:

It was a regular day for Katia Tiutiunnik until she received a phone call from a German publishing company, asking if she’d like to publish her PhD. The English-speaking publishing company, Lambert Academic Publishing, approached Katia last year asking her if she was interested in revising her research and putting into book form. Without hesitation she accepted and, after a long process of editing and getting fonts right, she received the final copy in December. “I felt really glad,” she said. “I’m very happy at the sense of completion.” Katia, who is based in Tomakin, composes music that is performed on the international stage. (…) Katia said her book was about the link between music and the Middle East. “It reflects how non-music fields interact with composing music.” (…) Katia, who completed her PhD at the Australian National University in 2003, admitted she had always thought about publishing it, but it wasn’t something she thought of doing so soon…

A Local Perspective on Military Withdrawal from Politics in Indonesia: East-Java 1998-2003

Author: Jonni Mahroza

… Himself an Indonesian army officer, Mahroza had unparalleled access to military actors in East Java. More importantly, he was an expert interviewer, eliciting his informants’ unvarnished views about the end of the “twin functions” doctrine (used to legitimate military rule throughout the New Order) from their own perspectives. He also conducted extensive interviews with civilian politicians at the district and municipality levels, and closely observed all of these actors’ political behavior for many months. (…) Another important finding is the author’s close analysis of the ways in which the territorial system has in practice been a major source of income not only for senior officers but well down into the ranks. This analysis is presented very well. It is really the best treatment I have seen of the territorial system as a pattern of multilayered interactions with great potential danger for democratic consolidation. (…) In sum, this is an excellent study of a critical period in Indonesian history by an analyst who made the most of his opportunity to describe and explain the events he observed at close hand..

A Local Perspective on Military Withdrawal from Politics in Indonesia: East-Java 1998-2003

Author: Jonni Mahroza

… This thesis is among the most interesting and informative that I have read in recent years. As the author points out, most studies of the Indonesian military focus on its ideology and behaviour at the national level without examining in detail what was happening at the regional level. There is, of course, good reason why scholars have tended to neglect local military developments, particularly within the military itself. Militaries everywhere, and certainly in Indonesia, are secretive institutions. Such a study is extremely difficult to carry out not only by foreign scholars who are inevitably considered suspect but also by Indonesians from outside the ranks of the military itself while military officers are usually reluctant to expose ‘internal issues’ to a wider public. (…) This thesis is written by an Indonesian military officer who is obviously concerned for the reputation of the institution of which he is part but is disappointed by its failure to commit itself thoroughly to the professionalisation that is its stated goal. The author does not adopt a condemnatory or moralizing tone but his message is clear nonetheless. This thesis provides much information about the internal workings of the military which, as far as I am aware, has never before been revealed in such detail and with such insight..
