Sponsor a Chapter in our Publication

Would you like to be more involved in our project? Consider sponsoring a chapter in our publication. You will get your name published in the publication as well as the opportunity to be in direct contact with the researchers working on your chapter. The list below is our chapter outline for the first three volumes of our research and other chapters in future volumes. All of these chapters need funding. We have provided the cost for completing the research and writing the chapter for each topic in order to give you an idea of our needs. If a topic interests you, please be in touch and let us know. We would love to speak with you regarding your donation and ensure that your gift is used according to your wishes. Chapters can be sponsored by individuals or groups and can also be divided into smaller needs, so please let us know what your interests are.
