Distribution and Retail

Welcome to our Resource Page, where you will find information frequently requested by readers, librarians and booksellers about Open Book Publishers titles, in print and electronic form.
Our model of publishing is affordable and convenient. Our paperbacks retail at less than £20, our hardbacks at around £30, and our e-books at under £6, which is significantly less than most academic monographs.
All of the books we publish are listed in our All Books tab and in our Catalogue available in PDF format. New publications are listed in Forthcoming Titles.

OBP's titles are available to order on our website and from major retailers internationally, including Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Our books are also available on the following Open Access platforms:

Some of our titles are also available at:
Internet Archive

OBP titles are preserved in the UK legal deposit libraries at the British Library, Portico and OpenEdition.
