Call for Proposals: Temple Faculty-Authored Open Textbooks
North Broad Press, a joint publishing project between Temple University Press and Temple University Libraries, seeks faculty members to author or edit open textbooks in their fields of study.
All Temple University faculty are eligible to apply. Faculty whose proposals are selected will receive a stipend of $5,000.
What does the work involve?
As author, the faculty member is responsible for writing the text, finding and/or creating suitable images and figures, and clearing any necessary permissions. As editor, the faculty member is responsible for finding contributors, ensuring content requirements and deadlines are met, communicating feedback, and writing an introduction for the volume. Faculty members will keep the copyright to their book and will be able to choose the Creative Commons license that best suits the project.
All North Broad Press projects go through the peer review process to ensure the accuracy, effectiveness, and appropriateness of the text.
Deadline for proposals: March 29, 2019
