Open Access Books

Open Access Monograph Initiatives

To help support University of Derby authors, we have a membership with Open Book Publishers which is an option for any researcher wanting to publish a monograph Open Access (OA). Open Book Publishers are an academic-led, not-for-profit book publisher of OA books. They do not charge a Book Processing Charge (BPC) but as a not-for-profit organisation, they do ask that publication grants are sourced wherever possible. However, they will not penalise authors who are unable to secure grants. More information on publishing a monograph/ book with OBP is available on their website and Author Guide.
