NOTE: These instructions apply only to Pressbooks.pub, a Pressbooks network designed for individual authors. If your institution has a self-hosted or hosted Pressbooks network, please contact your network manager for assistance in creating an account.
Authors interested in self-publishing a book on our Pressbooks.pub network can register a free account by clicking ‘Sign Up’ on the ‘Get Started’ page of our marketing site or visiting https://pressbooks.pub/wp/wp-signup.php directly. You will be asked to provide the following information:
- An email address
- A secure password
You’ll receive an email with a link to activate your account. Once you follow the instructions provided for account activation, you will be able to log-in and access your Pressbooks account.
After loggin in, the Create a book button will bring you to another form that allows you to select the webbook address, title, and book language of your first book.
The webbook address will be the URL at which your book can be accessed when published. An example of a webbook address would be: pressbooks.pub/examplebook.
Please note that your webbook address must be at least four characters, and can only be made up of letters and numbers. Webbook URLs must be unique, so you may receive an error if you enter the address of a webbook that already exists. Please note that webbook URLs cannot be changed after creation. Once you’ve completed the form, click CREATE BOOK.
You will be brought to the Dashboard for your new book in free trial mode and you can begin working.
