Editor's Notes

  1. When talking about OBP (and born OA, mission-driven publishers more generally) I have started focusing on how we are not as well known by authors as we should be: and because we publish all our books OA, we have a wealth of skill and expertise that we can offer authors to help them make the most of publishing their book OA. It’s not an add-on or an extra for us: it’s how we publish. This is how I would introduce the presentation – as an insight into us and presses like us, how we work, and what we can offer authors.
  2. Summary of who we are and what we do: the key facts.
  3. Here I return to this point about expertise in open access: these are points authors should consider when choosing a publisher for an OA book (and points we can give good answers about). (The first point enables me to say a word or two about how, when you publish digitally as well as in print, you want a publisher who can support you to make the most of the opportunity to present your research differently if that’s something you’re interested in – this provides the background for the presentation of our experimental/innovative books later on.)
  4. You may or may not want to keep this slide – I used it last week because I was speaking to the Glasgow School of Art and I particularly wanted to emphasise that they could include third-party materials in an OA book.
  5. On this slide, I briefly talk through these two books and how the embedded recording and the zoom function enhance the presentation of the research, as an illustration of some of our innovative work.
  6. This slide allows me to talk about the ‘prestige’ question by acknowledging that authors sometimes have concerns about whether we are a sufficiently prestigious press, but that in fact our books are widely reviewed and well-recognised -- they win prizes. I also mention here that we have authors at all career stages, from ECRs to authors known outside their field, like Amartya Sen and Noam Chomskey, and authors at all career stages in between. I point to ‘A Fleet Street in Every Town’ towards the bottom of the slide as a book that was developed from the author’s PhD thesis and ended up being a prizewinning book.
  7. This is an opportunity to mention that we are a small, author-focused, dedicated team who try to give authors a great experience publishing with us, and many of them are kind enough to say that we do so (and also kind enough to let us put their praise on our website!)
  8. This slide is where I will cover our costs and I will say that we ask authors who have recourse to grant funding to apply for it to defray the cost of publishing their book; this is essential (along with the other two key funding streams of book sales and the Library Membership programme) to enable us to publish authors without any funding. We will be asking UKRI-funded authors, as authors with recourse to grant funding, to apply for this. I also emphasise a) our costs are very reasonable in comparison with other presses (and we are transparent about them) and b) we are a non-profit press, so any surplus goes back into publishing more books, not to shareholders (and that there isn’t normally much surplus, as we keep our costs as low as possible!) I call this a ‘mixed model’ of funding the press.
  9. Depending on how long it takes you to go through the slides up until this point, you might want to ditch some or all of the remaining slides (you will have about ten minutes for the presentation). If you keep them: I use them to talk about how the publishing landscape is changing, and that OBP is not the only mission-driven press that’s born OA (or transitioning to full OA) and that authors should be aware of their increased options in this changing landscape.
  10. These are some new presses (or presses that have relaunched or shifted to full OA) that have sprung up in the last 12-18 months. I use this slide to acknowledge that this changing landscape can be confusing, and authors don’t have endless time to follow the changes in academic publishing. Which leads me into the next slide…
  11. Places authors can go to find out about more such publishers. On this slide I emphasise two things: 1) these are all organisations that include multiple presses, making it more efficient for authors to find them, and 2) these are all organisations that have entry requirements/standards that presses have to meet to join them, which should confer a measure of trust. I also mention that authors can, of course, read the books published by a press they want to know more about, because they are OA…
  12. Finally I direct them to the OA Toolkit and the OABN for more advice and support on publishing an OA book.
  13. The contact details will need updating depending on who speaks.
