Open Monograph Initiatives for UB Authors

Toward an Open Monograph Ecosystem (TOME)
"TOME brings together scholars, universities, libraries, and presses in pursuit of a common goal—a sustainable open monograph ecosystem...TOME launched in 2017 as a five-year pilot project of the Association of American Universities (AAU), Association of Research Libraries (ARL), and Association of University Presses (AUPresses). The pilot is built on a) participating colleges and universities and b) participating university presses." UB is a participating TOME partner. Additional information is available on TOME's FAQ page. Interested UB authors should contact Chris Hollister.
