Brill Extends Open Access Model to Books

By Africa S. Hands

From LISWire:

As a major publisher in the Humanities, Social Sciences, Biology and International Law, Brill is committed to enhancing access to academic content in any sustainable way. Since its academic book publications are a cornerstone of the program, it is extending Brill Open to include monographs and edited volumes.

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).

All Brill Open book titles are listed in the Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB).
