I’m hoping to get some advice on appropriate honorariums to provide to people who work on Open Textbooks. Specifically, I’d like to provide payment to someone to write a chapter for my textbook on a subject I’m not well-versed in, and I’d also like to remunerate two to three peer reviewers of the text.
Does anyone have guidance on respectful sums for writing and peer-reviewing?
Hi Lindsey — I believe organizations like the OEN typically offer $200 honorariums for faculty reviewing textbooks. Grants for writing can very significantly based on the work that the author will be doing. We’ve actually had a conversation on paying OER contributors before; I’m dropping in a link here in case it is a useful starting point: Office Hours: Money, Money, Money!
