DOI for Pressbooks/Open Educational Resource - Book

We are currently looking to register one of our faculty member’s books written using the publishing website, Pressbooks. It’s an Open Educational Resource and although the university supports this work and plans to post it in our Institutional Repository, we are not the “publisher” and since that’s a required field in the web form, I’m hoping for a workaround or alternative to this.

Thank you!

Hi Mary,

For self-published books, the Publisher field in the book’s metadata record should contain the author’s name.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.
