“Communication is our business as professionals, as publishers, and as a community. We aim to open that channel once more.”
- Sadanand Singh, Ph.D.,Chairman
Plural Publishing, Inc. aims to fill a space in the field of communication sciences and disorders that will help meet the needs of professionals, clinicians, professors, and students. Plural's objective, consistent with the past publishing ventures of its founders, is to meet authors and customers eye-to-eye and reduce the "ivory tower mentality" from the professional publishing world. Plural Publishing prioritizes the intellectual growth of the disciplines it serves and strives to improve and advance these fields through its publications.
Dr. Sadanand Singh, co-founder of Plural Publishing, was an active member and Fellow of the American Speech-Hearing-Language Association (ASHA). He was the recipient of the 2006 Honors of the Association from ASHA and the 2006 Samuel F. Lybarger Award from the American Academy of Audiology. Dr. Singh was a Professor and Department Chair at four universities and served on the advisory boards of some of the leading universities in the United States. His observations of the needs in health care education led him to extend himself into the publishing arena. Through his experience, he began to realize that professionals often know what needs to be published more than publishers themselves.
Dr. Singh began his publishing career over 20 years ago with the goal to directly communicate with professionals, students, and scientists to discover their needs, and to publish authors of high-quality, books, textbooks, manuals, handbooks, and reference books. Plural Publishing is the fourth company founded by Dr. Singh, following the successful legacy of College-Hill Press (1980 to 1986), Singular Publishing Group (1990 to 1997), and ContentScan (2001 to 2004).
In 2004, Dr. Singh's keen insight and experience as an astute observer of the publishing industry motivated him to found Plural Publishing, Inc. to serve as a conscientious publishing house for disciplines whose publishing needs were not being met. The scope of Dr. Singh's publishing fields expanded from Speech, Language and Hearing, to Otolaryngology (ENT), Gastroenterology (GI), Oncology, and Neuroscience. Dr. Singh and a group of proactive, highly selected advisers envision Plural Publishing, Inc. as an exceptionally informed, vital, responsive, and dominant leader in its dynamic marketplace—a company that holds the best interests of the medical profession at heart.
