Why Not Make Physics Textbooks Free?
8:30 AM -9:00 AM
Justin Peatross, Brigham Young University
Michael J. Ware
We have authored an upper-division optics textbook that is freely available at www.optics.byu.edu. We call on physicists everywhere to join the Internet age and share their knowledge without charge. Electronic tools make it easy to produce and distribute a professional product. The small royalty from traditional publishing comes with a huge overhead that makes your work pricy for students. Why not forego it?
