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 of our books are published Open Access with Creative Commons (CC) licenses.

We offer two publication models:

Our full-service model, priced at € 5,000 per book, includes copy-editing as well as 50 printed copies at no extra charge. We also electronically distribute a free print-ready file so that readers can print their own physical copy. Authors will receive royalties on print copies ordered from Aldus Press.

We also offer a more cost-effective online model, priced at € 2,500 per book. In this model, e-books are fully open access, and print copy sales offset the lower Book Publication Charge (BPC).

OPEN PEER REVIEW

At Aldus Press, we have developed an open peer review (OPR) process because we believe this is the most transparent, effective way for readers to validate the quality and relevance of our books, which is the primary goal of peer review.

Prior to publication, authors solicit reviews of their work from their peers. Aldus validates the identities of these reviewers. Their names and affiliations (including their ORCID iDs) as well as the reviews are published in the book itself and included in the metadata.

Based on the reputations and endorsements of these reviewers, readers will be able to assess the work quickly and accurately.

OUR VIEW

“After twenty years in academic publishing, I saw the need for a fast, affordable publishing model that supports researchers and scientists everywhere. We want to enable every single scholar, scientist, doctor, and engineer to make their research and inventions available to everyone.”
