Statement

We're Open Book Publishers, a not-for-profit, scholar-led Open Access academic press, and we’re dedicated to making outstanding books that are free for everybody to read. If you believe that knowledge should be available to everyone, you can support our work with a monthly pledge and become part of the OBP community!

N.B. Donors on Liberapay appear anonymously. We love to hear from our donors and find out more about who you are and why you support us: please contact Lucy Barnes on <lucy@openbookpublishers.com> if you'd like to get in touch!

What we do

  • We publish on average two new books a month, and they are all rigorously peer-reviewed, beautifully made, and completely free to read and download in their entirety
  • We have produced more than 100 top-quality titles by some of the world’s leading scholars, including Noam Chomsky, Amartya Sen, and Ruth Finnegan
  • We’ve had over two million readers from all over the world and we don’t charge them a penny. Our authors don’t pay to publish with us either
  • We are involved in a variety of software development projects, from XML publishing to usage data aggregation: we are committed to making all this Open Source to make it easier for others to start their own Open Access publishers

Why you should join us

All the money we make goes into creating more books for everyone to read. If you pledge to support our work, you will:

  • Be listed on our website as a supporter (if you’d like to be)
  • Be directly responsible for the creation of new books
  • If we can raise €100 a month ($115) for a year, that will fund a new work in its entirety!

If you believe knowledge should be available to everyone, regardless of cost, join us - your contribution will make a real difference.
