Our vision, following on from the European ‘Project S’, is to publish all books in Open Access. This means that each and every person can download a digital copy of the work at no cost. Readers are even allowed to print a copy for their own use or to purchase a printed edition through our website.
Authors and their institutions pay Aldus Press a ‘Book Publishing Charge’(BPC) for the work involved in producing the publication. Each author receives, as part of the BPC package 50 printed copies (hard bound).
There are a large number of universities, scientific institutions, funding bodies as well as governments that (partly) reimburse these BPC. We at Aldus Press can advise you how to source funding for your project.
