This series is a collection of books dealing with various aspects of crafting your career in academia. It is based on my popular website Harzing.com and contains edited and curated collections of my white papers, blogposts, and presentations, as well as newly written texts. Currently, only Writing effective promotion applications is published, but new books will be added regularly, so do check back! 

Books are reasonably priced to make them accessible for individual academics, as well as universities who would like to bulk-buy books for their staff members. However, for those for whom this price is still a barrier, similar information can always be accessed for free from my blog.
