Aquiline Books at UNT: A Progress Report

Description: Presentation for the 2017 Texas Conference on Institutional Repositories.

In this presentation, we 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.
