Open Access Scholarly Books: Demystifying the Publishing Process

Dedicated open access book publishers are still not that common, although some academic publishers have established various kinds of non-profit and for-profit open access programs. Open access journal publishing is more prevalent and as a result more of us understand the article publishing process. This talk will discuss different kinds of open access programs and then present the key stages of the scholarly book publication process: proposal, peer review, funding applications, copyediting, proofreading, indexing, and printing. Please join Ryan Van Huijstee, Acquisitions Editor at Concordia University Press, for this enlightening presentation and be sure to bring your questions. The intended audience is graduate students, postdocs, and first-time authors, but everyone is welcome!
