What is EDP Open Books?

EDP Open Books is an online solution for the publication of books in Open Access, in French or in English.

EDP Open Books allows high visibility for books. Open Access publishing offers the same characteristics as paper or electronic books from EDP Sciences: high-level peer review, production, indexation, archive, and search and link capabilities.

All these books are freely and permanently available online to anyone, increasing visibility and discoverability for authors’ work. EDP Sciences charges a book publication fee at the beginning of the publication process. This fee varies depending on the number of pages per book [contact us for a quotation].
