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 in Open Access using the 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 cost. Electronically we also distribute freely a print-file so readers can self-print a physical copy. Authors will receive a royalty on printed copies ordered through Aldus Press.

We also offer a more cost-effective online model, priced at € 2.500 per book. Electronic dissemination is fully open. The sale of printed copies offsets the lower Book Publication Charge (BPC).



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

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

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



With the help of our partners we have created a suite of tools and services that will give your publication the widest possible reach and dissemination.

*Hosting: BiblioLabs, JSTOR, MUSEOpen, OAPEN, and

*Archiving: Clockks and Portico

*Library indexing: we distribute MARC records using OCLC. We push notification to a large number (> 500) academic libraries

“After twenty years in academic publishing, I saw the need for an affordable and fast publishing model that supports 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.”
