Open Access for Palgrave Macmillan Books
We offer authors the option to publish their academic books and chapters open access – making your research freely available to anyone with internet access.
Open access allows unrestricted online access to your ebook with no reading or subscription fees. Authors retain copyright and are able to comply with funders' open access mandates.
Our open access books and chapters on average receive seven times more downloads, 50% more citations, and ten times more online mentions compared to non-open access books*.
Each open access book or chapter receives the same editorial and publishing expertise, rigorous peer review and high quality production process that non-open access scholarly books receive.
