Open Book Publishers are “changing the nature of the traditional academic book”

OBP1Open Book Publishers was founded in 2008 by a small group of academics at the University of Cambridge.There are currently 67 published and 18 forthcoming titles spanning subjects including  Anthropology, Archaeology & Religion, Digital Humanities, Economics, Politics & Sociology, Law, Literature & Language, Mathematics, Philosophy, and Women & Gender Studies. To see a full list of published monographs and if you want to find out more about the vision behind OBP, their website is available from here and an interactive electronic version of their Winter 2016 catalogue can be found here. You can click straight into the full-text of the ebook version from within this catalogue.

OBP’s academic monographs are published in hardback, paperback, PDF and ebook editions, and they also include a free online edition that can be read online via the OBP website, and embedded anywhere. OBP titles are free to share and re-use, through Creative Commons licences.

OBP are challenging the standard “reproduced” ebook format by creating interactive ebooks, incorporating moving images, links and sound into the text. Their more traditional titles are complemented with freely available digital resources, including extra chapters, reviews, links and image galleries. These resources can be found alongside the relevant ebook on their website.

To read the ebooks directly from the website click on Read the PDF or Read the HTML buttons on the front page of each book title. To download a PDF, epub or mobi version of a title, just click on the relevant download button, as shown in the sceenshot below.
