Notes

Abstract: The University of North Texas is launching a new library-based service to publish works of scholarship, both new and reissued, from the UNT community. All publications, published under the Eagle Editions imprint, are freely available to read online, and some are also be available in print, e-books, or both. The cost to publish varies by the services chosen by the publishing partner; prices are based on fees charged by freelancers and vendors that carry out editing and design tasks. Libraries staff members advise on options for distribution in print and e-book formats, partnering with the UNT Press on some projects but generally leaving authors to make arrangements with distributors. This presentation will give an overview of this new service and its fee structure.
