Our Publishing Model

You left your model on the road - Another planksip non sequitur

Like a warm cup of coffee - plank - SIP is consumptive in nature. #Googleplanksip

Executive Summary

Starting in 2016, planksip is a boutique digital book publishing agency and media outlet specializing in publishing content related to the Ethics and Science of Climate Change, Philosophy, Psychology, Astronomy, Quantum Physics, and Biology as it relates to the Neuroscience of behaviour and culture. Hellenic Western Philosophy and contemporary thought leaders act as a starting point for our preferred culture narratives and curation of authorship. Counterpointed with philosophy-inspired content throughout, our approach is to offer a subscription-based publishing service for North American authors and subsidized incentives for those in need. The goal is for authors and thought leaders to compete on the world stage of ideas and thought dissemination.

Our monthly subscription model of $101 per month (Canadian Funds) includes unlimited publication and output of digital versions in our unique iterative publishing model.

On the road to success, planksip is here to help!
