Vacancies & Volunteering

About us

Open Book Publishers is an innovative, not-for-profit Open Access academic publisher based in Cambridge, actively changing the nature of the traditional academic book. We are widely recognised as world leaders in Open Access scholarly monograph publishing, and proud to have published over 130 titles - including works by renowned authors such as Noam Chomsky and Amartya Sen. All our books are available online free of charge, so that everyone can access high quality peer-reviewed research regardless of income, as well as in printed and ebook editions. We are very proud that our free online titles have now been read by over two million people worldwide, and are attracting over 400 readers per title every month.

Volunteering Opportunities

If you would like to support our work by volunteering, get in touch! We welcome volunteers of different levels of skill and experience and it is possible to work remotely in some instances.

If you are new to publishing you would have the opportunity to try a range of key aspects, including marketing, editorial and text formatting tasks in a non-corporate environment. We are a small team and there is always lots to do, so you can get involved rather than simply observe.

If you have some experience, we would love to hear from you if you would be willing to help us in any aspect of our work: proofreading, typesetting, copy editing, marketing, peer-reviewing, developing our website, or providing specialist expertise in your own field of research.

OBP is committed to encouraging equality and diversity among our workforce, and eliminating unlawful discrimination on the basis of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race (including colour, nationality, and ethnic or national origin), religion or belief, sex (gender) and sexual orientation.

Unfortunately we are unable to remunerate our volunteers, or refund any travel expenses. If you would like further information please contact Alessandra Tosi.
