Additional Information

Last Year:
We've moved from open access monograph policy and textbook publishing to only publishing textbooks this year.
Future Plans:
There is no capacity in terms of supplementary funding available (as it was previously) at the university for authors wanting to publish open access. If the authors have designated funding in their research grants then it is a viable solution. We've turned to partnerships with special groups on campus instead. In this partnership we are assisting faculty in getting university publications designed and processed through other departments get their branding through the Libraries' ePublishing Program. We assist with getting the books indexed - ISBN, CIP, DOI, on a publishing platform for dissemination, etc.
