The POD INDEX for author solutions services is something we have been working on for the past couple of months and over three days of the weekend we compiled the June 2010 index (56) which marks the first month of flotation for all the author solutions services we have reviewed. More details on the POD Index this week, how it works, and what plans we have for it and some of the things we learned over the weekend.
We believe the POD INDEX will help to guide authors to services on the up, and those, gradually on the down. If you like, what we are presenting is a kind of stock exchange for author solutions services. Again, more later in the week when we will explain the index key and index values.
