Stages to create a resource in Open Author
There are three stages to creating an educational resource in Open Author: Write, Describe, and Submit.
Submitting your resource
Once you have written and described your resource, you will select a copyright license.
- Allow Modifications? Select how you would like your work to be used. Choosing Yes lets other modify your work such as translating it, adapting it for a different age group, and adding additional content. Your original resource is not affected.
- Allow Commercial Uses? Select Yes or No to indicate whether you allow your resource to be used commercially. Choosing Yes allows your work to be used by others for commercial purposes, such as in a textbook sold for profit
- Jurisdiction - Use the option, International, for the most recent license that is also jurisdiction-neutral and effective globally.
- Click the Publish button to publish your resource.
Note: Your draft resource is only visible to you and your co-author(s). Once your resource is published it is indexed on the site and can be searched and discover by other SHMS users. Other users can then save, share, or remix your work, depending on your conditions of use. For more information on conditions of use see Usage Rights.
