Open Book Publishers is a non-profit, open access press. All our books are open access from the date of publication, as well as being available to buy in print and EPUB formats. Any author can publish with us without payment of a fee, provided their book passes our peer review processes.

Libraries can support Open Book Publishers by joining our Library Membership Programme, contributing a small annual fee (£300-£700pa in the UK, depending on the size of the institution) in return for benefits including free access to over 300 scholarly publications in EPUB formats that we would usually charge for, discounts for hard copies, high-quality metadata and more.

But most importantly, by joining the programme, libraries and their users support authors to publish open access books without being charged a fee.
