Support us

We believe that high-quality academic research should be freely available all over the world, without charge to readers or authors. We are an award-winning, scholar-led social enterprise and we do not operate for commercial profit, nor do we charge our authors to publish. If you think that what we do is valuable, you can support us in several ways.

  1. Donate
  2. Buy our books and recommend them to your librarian
  3. Persuade your library to join our Membership Programme
  4. Volunteer

We are delighted to receive donations of any size, and all donations go into creating high-quality, open access scholarly books for everyone to read — a cause worth supporting!

  • One-off or recurring donations can be made directly in various currencies:
  • If you would be willing to give a monthly pledge, why not join OBP on Liberapay or Patreon? It only takes a couple of clicks and you can choose how much you contribute every month.
  • It is also possible to give charitable donations that are eligible for Gift Aid — please contact Rupert Gatti for more details.

Thank you for your generous donation. You are helping us to change the face of scholarly publishing, a book at a time!

Buy our books and recommend them to your librarian

All our books are published open access and are freely available in PDF, HMTL and XML editions, but we also offer high-quality paperback, hardback, and EPUB editions for a reasonable price. Sales are our largest income stream, so every time you buy a book from us you are supporting us to publish more titles open access and freely available for the world.

You can also recommend our books to your library — or even better persuade them to join our Library Membership programme!

Persuade your library to join our Membership Programme

Our Library Membership programme supports our award-winning open access book publishing programme. By joining the programme, libraries and their users both support and benefit from OA publishing. Our Library Membership programme is a vital source of funding for us, so by becoming a Library Member you are enabling us to publish more open access books without charging readers or authors. Contact Laura Rodriguez for more information.
