The Open Book: New Directions in Monograph Publishing

open monographAre you engaged in scholarly monograph publishing? Do you wonder about the current landscape of publishing monographs openly so that readers can access your work free of charge? Would you like to know more so that you can prepare for future plans to publish your monograph openly?  Then please join experts Michael Burton and Richard Pult of the University Press of New England (UPNE) for part one of a two-part seminar on the current state of monograph publishing. Part one will take place on Thursday, October 20th from noon-1pm in the Baker Library Treasure Room.  Lunch will be provided and topics will include publishing print monographs and the many new initiatives in open access book publishing. Please register!

Part two of this seminar will be offered on November 17th (registration coming soon). During part two, Michael and Richard will focus on the nuts and bolts of publishing contracts and rights retention. They will cover contracts, licenses and other means of gaining rights to your work in order to build upon it or digitize it.  Take this opportunity to learn about good practices with monograph publishing contracts, and hear from other faculty authors about their experiences.

For additional questions about both seminars, please contact  Jill Baron or Barbara DeFelice.
