Additional InformationPlans for Expansion & Future Directions:
The University’s president has recently become interested in student affordability, leading to increased funding for and promotion of our support for OER. We expect our OER publishing to increase in the coming years.
Since the 2020 Library Publishing Directory, we have recorded zero monographs published by the UNT Press because the press director considers monographs to be tight, short academic books with a very limited market print run of 300 or less. This definition does not apply to UNT Press's books, which are scholarly but with general-interest appeal.
