Academic publisher University of Buckingham Press (UBP) is launching an online Open Access imprint. The UBP Open Books imprint will feature new titles published on a "gold Open Access basis", meaning the online edition of a publication is available to be read, downloaded and shared for free, as long as the author is credited. The imprint will utilise a under a CC-BY-NC licence, which limits use to non-commercial contexts, to ensure all digital editions are available equally and openly to a global audience. As part of its new books strategy, the UBP Open Books imprint will run in tandem with its commissioned books list. The press is also looking at ways to move a number of backlist titles across to its Open Access list.
