Open Educational Resources Collective Publishing Workflow

Plan: Introduction

The Plan 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 planning a new open textbook publishing project.

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

  1. Plan an Open Textbook Project
  2. Get Set Up For Success with Copyright
  3. Choose a Creative Commons Licence
  4. Call for Contributions From Other Authors
  5. Agree and Document Expectations with Co-Authors
  6. Allocate and Manage Writing and Publishing Tasks
  7. Identify the Publishing Support Authors Will Need
  8. Adopt a Style Guide
  9. Get Familiar With Pressbooks
  10. Request a Pressbooks Shell.
