Edited books are currently one of the most popular book formats due to their ability to house varied and diverse perspectives on a central theme, making them a valuable acquisition to libraries worldwide. However, edited books rely completely on an editor’s ability to recruit enough relevant submissions to fulfill the requisite number of chapters needed to produce a high-quality title.

Completing an academic reference book is a major accomplishment and milestone in a researcher’s career.

You’ve heard of full journals receiving OA funding support, but did you know that if you are guest editing an OA special issue, that it is entirely possible to receive full OA funding on the special issue-level? Oftentimes, when OA funding has not yet been secured for the full journal, there is success in obtaining OA funding on a smaller scale, for a set number of articles (typically a special themed issue), which can then later put the full journal one step closing to becoming platinum.

Through the University of North Texas’ investment in IGI Global e-Collections, the institution was able to support publishing Global View of Open Access and Scholarly Communications, edited by Dr. Daniel Gelaw Alemneh, from this institution, under diamond OA. Additionally, this initiative is providing unlimited OA article processing charge and chapter processing charge waivers for their institution.
As open access (OA) publishing becomes more widespread and continues to gain popularity among researchers due to its many benefits, some may be disappointed that their past work was published in a time when open access was not available to them and are wondering if there is anything they can do to change the access status of their publications.

Exceptional education, otherwise known as special education, has been plagued with deficit thinking and practices that have limited the growth of students from culturally and linguistically diverse background.
