Open the door to global discovery of your scientific research

Aldus Press is an innovative open access publisher committed to helping scholars easily disseminate their work in the form of monographs, conference series, text books and multi-author books.

Using the latest production technologies and global distribution platforms, we provide a fast and affordable way to publish books ensuring the widest possible dissemination, discovery and impact. Our fully transparent peer review process allows readers to effectively validate the quality and relevance of published works.

Aldus Press is named in honour of the great Venetian printer Aldus Manutius whose innovations greatly advanced the dissemination of knowledge. Now his tradition has been revived and rejuvenated.

Open Access

Research has shown that publishing Open Access ensures the highest impact for your academic work. Aldus Press wholeheartedly endorses this model and all our monographs are published under the CC-ND-NC license.

We have looked critically at the end-to end book production process and adapted it fully to open access, using the latest technologies and workflows. As a result, our book processing charge (BCP) is just 5,000 euro. We aim to publish your work within three months.

Authors receive up to 50 free printed copies of their work as part of the agreement. Printed copies can be purchased and distributed globally through our partnerships with on-demand printing houses. Digital copies (e.g. PDF, Epub and online) can be accessed and downloaded worldwide at no charge.

Open Peer Review

Aldus Press has developed an open peer review model that we believe is the most transparent and effective way to allow readers to validate the quality and relevance of books, which is the primary goal of peer review.

Before publication, authors solicit endorsing reviews for their works from peers in their field before publication. Aldus validates the identities of these reviewers. The names and affiliations of these reviewers (including their ORCID IDs) and the reviews are published in the book and are included in the book’s metadata.

Building on the reputation of these peers, readers will be able to assess the quality and relevance of the work.

After twenty years in academic publishing, I saw the need for an affordable and fast publishing company that supports hard-working researchers and scientists everywhere. We want every single scholar, scientist, doctor and engineer to be able to make their studies and inventions available to everyone.
