First, the Title Selection Committee will vote on a shortlist of titles for inclusion into the next KU collection. 

Next, if your book was shortlisted, then it will be part of the KU collection which institutions and libraries can participate in, pledging to make titles Open Access. 

If your title has secured enough pledges to become Open Access, then it will be unlatched and made available on our hosting platforms such as OAPEN.

You are free to promote your OA title amongst your peers and in your networks, and KU will provide download statistics to your publisher, showing the number of downloads and where they were downloaded.
