Dear CourseSource community,
Since its inception, publishing in CourseSource has been free! We regret that the time has come to charge for publications; CourseSource is supported by grants and donations, and our budget no longer allows us to take on the full burden of publication charges. We will be implementing a flat fee of $400 per article beginning in January 2023. We have budgeted some funds to assist authors with costs—both a reduced fee of $250 or a complete waiver, depending on circumstances. We also will implement a group discount program in which an institution or a group from a collaborative grant can pay $1000 per year and publish as many articles as they would like.
Thank you for your continued support.

CourseSource has recently partnered with the Society of Toxicology (SOT), and we are recruiting submissions that utilize the Toxicology Learning Framework to add to the toxicology collection!
Interested in sharing your work? Check out this video recording of the CourseSource workshop held at the 2022 SOT Annual Meeting: Publishing Educational Toxicology Exercises in CourseSource: A Step-by-Step Workshop for Preparing Your Manuscript. This workshop equips educators to use CourseSource and inspires them to submit their inclusive, evidence-based educational resources. In the first part of the workshop, Erin Vinson, the former managing editor of CourseSource, reviews the design of the CourseSource website and its features, and the various types for submissions. In the second part, Lauren Aleksunes (“Repurposing Drugs as Countermeasures for Chemical Weapons: An Interactive Training for Undergraduate Students”), Joshua Gray (“Pick Your Poison: A Semester-Long Toxicology Project Integrating Toxicology Core Concepts and Scientific Communication”), and Mindy Reynolds (“A Case Study Approach to the One Environmental Health Hypothesis”) discuss their curricula and the preparation of CourseSource manuscripts. The last section provides time for participants to prepare their own concepts for submission.
We look forward to seeing your submissions!
