History of Science and Technology Open Textbook needs you!

The Rebus Community is building a new collaborative model for open academic & textbook publishing, and we’re always looking for forward-thinking academics, students and citizens to come help us reimagine publishing.

Right now, we are looking for contributors of short sections to a new (open) History of Science and Technology textbook. Would you, or someone you know, be interested in contributing a 1,000-word section on any of the following topics?

  • Ancient Egyptian Metallurgy, Medicine & Mathematics
  • Mathematics, Astronomy, & Aristotle
  • Ancient Roman science, engineering, and technology

There are many more sections up for grabs, and also needs for proofreaders, reviewers and more. Find out about this project, lead by Danielle Mead Skjelver, from the University of Maryland University College & University of North Dakota.

We’re also supporting the publication of a dozen other open textbooks, including: Intro to Philosophy, The Science of Human Nutrition, The Open Anthology of Earlier American Literature, and Financial Strategy for Public Managers, working with faculty and staff from institutions including University of Hawaii, University of Washington, Graceland University, University of British Columbia, University of Arizona, University of Calgary, and many more.

Perhaps you’d like to help?
