Description

In June 2015, the UNT Libraries launched a for-fee service for publishing works of scholarship from authors affiliated with the university. While authors can choose from a menu of editing and design options, all publications are made free to read online through the institutional repository.

We will reflect on our choices in designing the publishing service -- such as not organizing peer review, delivering publications through the repository, requiring free public access but not Creative Commons licenses -- and on what authors have chosen from the menu of options over the past two years.

This is a proposal for a lightning talk. If you're short on full sessions, I might be able to stretch this out, but to no more than 30 minutes.
