All project teams are required to publish four chapters of their book by 28 February 2023. 'Published' means:
If the team cannot meet the deadline, the Institutional Contact (library staff member) must apply for an extension request by Friday 17 February 2022. The standard extension period is two months.
The Request to Publish form must be submitted by the Institutional Contact (library staff member) book's due date (either 28 February or the extended deadline). In the three weeks post-submission, CAUL will review the book and its settings and make it public on Pressbooks.
Many authors are not ready to publish their entire book and will instead only meet the requirement to publish four chapters by the due date. We recommend authors take the following actions to signal to readers that the book will be released in stages:
Don't forget, the book will only be accessible via the URL, not in the catalogue (unless the authors ask to have the book in the catalogue).
