Open Access


What Is Open Access?

Open access is a free access, online version of your book. Titles or individual chapters are available to everyone and, depending on the license, your work may be free from use restrictions. You may choose the license type you prefer once your manuscript is contracted.

Why Publish in Open Access?

Open access allows for a broader dissemination of information and assists ongoing and future scholarship. Many independent authors choose open access because it is often a requirement by grants and research councils.

How Does It Work?

Open access titles/chapters are published under a creative commons licence. This licence allows the online version of the work to be read and downloaded for free; users can copy and share the work ensuring you are credited as the original creator and rights owner. Depending on your project and your funding requirements, we are flexible on which licence to use -- CC BY-NC-ND or CC BY.

Your work will be available on our website as well as through other open access platform providers such as DOAB. The ePDF and XML versions will not be sold through institutional library channels; a print version will, however, be available for sale for individual readers who prefer to own a physical copy of the book.

Knowledge Unlatched

We partner with Knowledge Unlatched (KU) every year to make a number of Anthem titles open access. KU asks for nominations in specific subject areas, and invites libraries around the world to pledge their support to individual titles through crowdfunding. Titles with enough support are made open access. Our partnership with KU ensures that more Anthem titles are open access, at no cost to the author, either immediately upon publication or after a stipulated period.

Please inform your editor if you would like your title to be nominated for KU funding. They will be able to submit it in case KU asks for nominations in your subject area. For more information on KU subject areas please visit the KU website.

Author Support

Anthem Press open access titles go through the same editorial and production attention as our regular manuscripts. All titles are subject to peer review and receive editorial, production, and marketing support.

Policy and Terms

Anthem Press offers the open access option to all authors, for complete books as well as individual book chapters. Publication charges are based on a fixed price per typeset page. Authors interested in open access information may contact openaccess@anthempress.com for more details.
