Opening the Future: A New Model for Open Access Books

The Model

CEU Press is going Open Access.

CEU Press welcomes members as we aim to convert to a fully OA monograph frontlist. In return, you will receive access to some of the most popular titles from CEUP’s extensive backlist. By purchasing access to the backlist, you can fund CEU Press's future to be open access.

Open Access

Open access refers to peer-reviewed research work that is free to read and free to re-use. It has advantages for readers and authors alike. Open access for books is also high on the international policy agenda. Many models for OA books are prohibitive, though, for authors who do not have funding. In our model, library/institution funding to subscribe to our backlist is used to create a frontlist of OA monographs, with the same high-quality print editions available for purchase, yielding an equitable, open future for book publishing.
