    Publish an open access book with Springer

    We offer authors the option to publish their books and chapters open access – making your research freely available to anyone with internet access!

    We offer authors the option to publish open access books and chapters in a wide range of areas within science, technology and medicine (STM) and within the humanities and social sciences (HSS).

    Open access allows unrestricted online access to your ebook with no reading or subscription fees. Authors retain copyright and are able to comply with funders' open access mandates.

    Our open access academic books and chapters on average receive seven times more downloads, 50% more citations, and ten times more online mentions compared to non-open access books*.

    Each open access scholarly book or chapter receives the same editorial and publishing expertise, rigorous peer review and high quality production process that non-open access books receive.
