For open access monographs and collected volumes, our fees start at about 7.000€ plus VAT. Possible additional costs depend on the type of the book (size, complexity, services required).

Collaborative open access funding models


We are dedicated to implementing innovative and sustainable funding models for open access publishing. In order to enable more scholars to publish their book publications immediately in open access, we are working with academic libraries and research funders to develop new funding models. Our open access transformation packages allow more authors to publish in OA with us, independently from their personal funds and institutional affiliation.
