Open Educational Resources Collective Publishing Workflow

Initiate: Introduction

The Initiate stage of this workflow is designed to guide authors and library staff through some of the decisions you’ll need to make and tasks you'll need to complete when initiating a new open textbook publishing project.

In the Initiate stage, authors and library staff will work together and independently to:

  1. Get Familiar with OER and Other Key Concepts
  2. Find Open Textbooks to Use or Adapt
  3. Understand Copyright
  4. Understand the Basics of Creative Commons Licensing
  5. Find Authors to Collaborate with
  6. Seek Out and Apply for Funding or Support.
