When: Monday, November 26, 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Where: TH253 e-classroom

Who: Guest Speaker: Lisa Quinn,
         Acquisitions Editor,
         Wilfrid Laurier University Press
         Facilitated by: Chabriol Colebatch,
         Copyright Coordinator/Legal Advisor
         Brock University

What: This workshop will be invaluable for faculty or students interested in publishing a scholarly text and will focus on:

  • What kind of terms you can expect to see in a book publishing contract;
  • What terms can surprise authors; and
  • What is considered standard and where you may see variation

Come and here an editor from a Canadian university press speak about common contractual concerns such as:

  • Do authors have any control over cover art?
  • Who is responsible for ensuring copyright permissions are in place for any third party materials?
  • What happens if the book goes out of print?
  • What does a non-compete clause mean?
