Launching the Institution as e-textbook publisher toolkit

Over the past 6-9 months, our project partners at Liverpool, Nottingham, UCL and UHI/Edinburgh Naper have been working hard to produce a first public draft of the Institution as e-textbook publisher toolkit.

We are very pleased to officially launch it today to coincide with our final project workshop in Birmingham. What you will see if you follow the links below is the first draft of the toolkit, over the course of the next few months we will add more content from the projects and source external content as appropriate.

The toolkit can be read as a whole, or the appropriate sections can be consulted as required. We have added links between the sections where appropriate, more internal navigation will follow. We have kept the wording in the sections to a minimum for ease of reading. However, each section also includes links out to more information produced by the teams as part of the project.

This version of the toolkit is a draft version, which will be subject to open peer review by the community over the course of the next 6 months. This means that we are very interested in your feedback and comments.

We will produce a final version, which will be available on the Jisc website in autumn 2018.

You can find the draft sections below:


2.Why publish textbooks?

3.Publishing process

4.Support for Staff


6.Marketing and distribution

7.Measures of success

8.Students as authors of e-textbooks
