Call for open textbooks

 

Call for open textbooks is an initiative to make high-quality course materials freely accessible to students and teachers.

Adaya Press welcomes applications to submit textbook proposals for any discipline in English, Portuguese or Spanish. Please, submit a brief description (300-400 words) of the proposed project by 20 December 2017 through the submission form. You will receive an initial editor review. If your proposal is accepted, authors will be invited to sumbit the full proposal (author guidelines). Proposals that do not fit into the call for textbook will be rejected and authors will be informed after the deadline. Full proposals will be peer-reviewed and returned to the author for revision. Resubmission period will be determined according to the reviewers’ comments (minor revision or major revision). Final acceptance of projects for publication will be dependent on positive peer review reports. Accepted proposals will be available online under a Creative Commons license: Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International (CC BY-NC 4.0).

The process from the full proposal submission to the publication may last between 4 and 6 months.
