Review a Textbook
Campus Manitoba is looking for qualified subject matter experts from Manitoba post-secondary institutions to review the open textbooks in our collection. Should the textbook meet the faculty member’s need, we are also asking them to consider a voluntary adoption of the textbook for a course.
An honorarium of $250 will be provided to eligible and qualified individuals who complete, submit — and permit the open publication of the review — on an open textbook in the MB Open Textbook collection.
The reviews will be published on the Campus Manitoba and BCcampus open textbook websites. They will be publicly available under a Creative Commons Attribution (CC-BY ) 4.0 license. More information about the review process can be found in the FAQ.
