UB Faculty are invited to submit a proposal to create a SUNY Open Textbook. The goal of this initiative is to assist faculty with the production of high-quality, customized, open-access textbooks, while helping reduce the cost of higher education.
If selected, you will be provided you with a monetary award, an online platform (Open Monograph Press) on which to publish the textbook, plus copy-editing and design support. While the textbooks will be open-access (freely available on the Internet), support can be provided for getting the textbooks available via print-on-demand, from which authors will be eligible to earn royalties. An additional award will be paid to authors who include and assess student involvement in the design and development of the textbook.
More information, including proposal submission guidelines and award details, is available here: http://opensuny.org/omp/index.php/SUNYOpenTextbooks/about/submissions
This opportunity is made possible thanks to a SUNY Innovative Instruction Technology Grant and the support of SUNY Libraries & SUNY Press.
