Dates: April 28-30 from 11-1
Where: Faculty Commons, 116 Pearson Hall
Facilitator: Julia Oestreich, PhD, Senior Editor , University of Delaware Press

Have you been contemplating publishing your book and asking yourself the following questions:

  • “How do I get a book published?”
  • “What can I expect from the editorial and publication process?”
  • “How long does getting a book published take?”
  • “I want to apply for a promotion/tenure. How do I get a book published in time to add it to my CV?”
  • “Do I want my book to be published in an electronic version or with multimedia materials?” “How will submitting my work to an institutional repository affect my chances of getting a book published?”
  • “What do publishers believe about issues such as open access, copyright, and fair use?”

All of these questions are relevant to university faculty, but often there are few campus resources available to provide answers. Julia Oestreich, Senior Editor of the University of Delaware Press, will be holding open hours at the Faculty Commons to answer such questions from the publisher’s perspective. This will help provide all faculty who intend to publish, or for whom publishing is an important element of pursuing promotion and tenure, with current information on publishing standards and processes, and on press’s attitudes regarding such issues as copyright, digital publishing, and open access.
