|This page in a nutshell: A publisher may derive notability from its publications|
The purpose of this guideline is to provide criteria for assessing the notability of publishers. The criteria are not intended to be exhaustive and a publisher may be notable without satisfying these criteria.
For the purposes of this guideline, a publication is a book or any other document whatsoever that has been published. References in this guideline to publishing a publication do not include self-publishing a publication. References in this guideline to a publisher do not include a vanity press, vanity publisher or subsidy publisher.
The criteria might not be applicable to the publication of reprints.
- This includes a periodical or a collection of publications such as an imprint or a "trilogy".
- An article on the publisher provides context for an article on a publication. This criterion is also a corollary of the next criterion.
- This includes any form of commentary
- Critical appraisal of a publication is critical appraisal of those responsible for it. An article on a publisher can include a bibliography of their publications.
