Notes

Abstract: The University of North Texas Libraries is launching a new service to publish works of scholarship, both new and reissued, from the UNT community that are not appropriate for a university press or other scholarly publisher. All publications will be freely available to read online, and some will also be available in print or as e-books. While publishers traditionally invest in a project up front and attempt to recover those costs through sales or subscriptions, the UNT Libraries keeps its publishing services lean enough that the cost to publish can be entirely covered up front, freeing the Libraries from the constraints of business models that attempt to recover that investment through sales. Publishing partners (authors or editors) keep their copyright, and if the publishing partner wishes to make print or e-book versions available for sale, the royalty rate on these is greater than with a conventional publisher that needs to recover the costs.
