“The staff and leadership of Carolina Academic Press stands out by far as the most competent, efficient, honorable and professional of all. As someone who cares deeply about commitments and competence, I am particularly impressed by the quality of the company’s editorial, marketing, and production staff. Every single person that I have had the pleasure of working with on a variety of projects over the past three years has demonstrated the highest level of competence and responsiveness. And the same is true, if not to a higher degree, with respect to the company’s executive leadership.”
