Open Book Publishers was founded in 2008 by a small group of academics at the University of Cambridge. Since then, we have grown into an international network of scholars who believe that it is time for academic publishing to become fairer, faster and more accessible. We are a registered Social Enterprise and Community Interest Company (CIC).
At Open Book Publishers we are changing the nature of the traditional academic book. Our books are published in hardback, paperback, pdf and ebook editions, but they also include a free online edition that can be read via our website, downloaded, reused or embedded anywhere.
We are proud to say that our free online books are currently being accessed by thousands of readers each month in over 180 countries. In addition, our digital publishing model allows us to extend our books well beyond the printed page. We are creating interactive books, and works that incorporate moving images, links and sound into the fabric of the text. More traditional titles are equipped with digital resources freely available on our website, including extra chapters, reviews, links and image galleries — these can be found on the individual product page for each book.
