Review an Open Textbook


BCcampus is looking for qualified textbook reviewers from British Columbia, Saskatchewan, and the Yukon to review existing open textbooks in the BC Open Textbook collection.

Where appropriate, we are also asking faculty to consider adopting the textbook they review in their courses, should the textbook meet their need.

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 BC Open Textbook collection.

The resulting reviews will be published on the BC Open Textbook website and will be publicly available under a Creative Commons Attribution No-Derivatives (CC-BY-ND) 4.0 International license.


Review and Selection Process

  • Faculty who would like to review a textbook should be teaching in the subject area for the selected text.
  • Reviewers should be teaching at a post-secondary institution in either British Columbia, Saskatchewan, or the Yukon.
  • Reviewers are willing to consider the adoption of the reviewed open textbook, providing its quality and contents are appropriate for their course.

Please note that in order to encourage a diversity of voices in the reviews, we limit the number of reviews per person to one.

Application Process

Faculty interested in reviewing one of the BC Open Textbooks, should submit an application. If you have any further questions, please email
