Welcome to the OA Books Network – Open Access Books Network Blog

“During the ElPub conference, a group of OA book experts — including members of SPARC Europe, OAPEN, OPERAS and ScholarLed — were discussing all things OA books over post-conference beers. If only we could do this more often, they thought!

Well here, they do.

A very warm welcome to everyone who would like to join our OA books community (if you are not yet a member, you are more than invited to join the conversation)!

We hope that this will be a space where we can test ideas and exchange information about the current issues in OA books, events to attend (physically or virtually) and texts to read and reflect upon. Whether you consider yourself a grizzled expert on OA book publishing, or if you’re just trying to find out more, please join the discussion boards, check out the events in the calendar, read the latest blog posts — and make this space your own.

Let us guide you through the site and how to use it….”
