      	             2018  opportunity to acquire  RIG
Rapid Intellect Group Inc (RIG),    20 years old  family-owned academic  
publisher  - financially self sufficient  - is known for two print  publications:  
Academic Exchange Quarterly (AEQ)  and  Sound Instruction Books (SIB),  
plus  a number of open-access  venues  (OA).

Content is the difference between AEQ and SIB.  Each issue of AEQ 
covers a range of topics while each SIB volume includes a specific topic.  
 AEQ -  regular quarterly  publication -   has published  84  print issues:   
	2700+  articles  by 3600+ authors  from 1160+ colleges and  
	universities  located  in the USA and  50+ countries.
SIB - irregular publication - has published 14 print volumes:  280+ articles  
         by 340+  authors  in the USA and  abroad.
OA - Editors' Choice,  HOW-TO-ESSAY ,  Zeitgeist Essay -  usually makes
	selected full-text articles  free to all, authors and readers.

Additional AEQ and  RIG  details are available  in  2007  Tenth 
Anniversary Editorial     http://rapidintellect.com/AEQweb/2007falE1.htm 

Today, in 2018, instead review of 2nd decade activities,  2008-2017, 
I offer  opportunity to acquire  RIG.  Because  of  age 70+ years old, 
it is time  to step down as  publisher  and  owner.

For an interested party to acquire RIG, without  any upfront cost, 
the following (1-2)  is required and (3-4) recommended to consider:
1. college or university
2. transition period:  3-5 years  full-time employment 	
    followed by  2-4 years  part-time  work  
3. plans for AEQ  and  SIB  plus  OA, for example: 
    a. continue publishing double-blind-peer-reviewed articles by authors in the US
    b. add new features: essays, book reviews, and commentaries
    c. expend publishing opportunity to authors outside the US 
    d. use RIG's  3000+ published articles, over 4,000,000 words, to create 
                    teaching and learning aids e.g. WAAE-W or short-format podcasts
4. three questions: 
    1st - can RIG assist to increase graduate school  enrolment ?  
    2nd - can short-format podcasts  support  students teaching and learning ?
    3rd - can and should  RIG platform be  monetized, Web and/or Mobile App ? 

I  can respond to postal inquiry only.  Expect reply in 2-6 weeks.
