Scholarly Publishing: Brill Extends Open Access Model to Books
From Brill Publishing:
Brill extends Brill Open, its Open Access model, to include books.
Titles published in Brill Open undergo the same rigorous peer review and uphold the same high-quality publication standards that Brill is known for. Brill Open is a sustainable, high-quality and accessible mode of publication.
Brill Open is available for books accepted for publication under Brill and its imprints. Authors retain copyright of their work in exchange for a Book Publication Charge (BPC). Upon receipt of the BPC, the title will be made freely accessible on Brill’s Online Books and Journals platform under a Creative Commons license: CC-BY or CC-BY-NC. The type of license determines the applicable rights and the level of the Book Publication Charge (BPC). For an overview of the current BPCs see: .
All Brill Open book titles are listed in the Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB), of which Brill is a proud sponsor, and are available through all Brill’s regular trade channels.
