OpenEdition Books

OpenEdition Books is a web platform for books in the humanities and social sciences. More than half of them are available in Open Access. Additional services are available through subscribing libraries and institutions.

OpenEdition Books is now home to thousands of titles from 60 publishers in the humanities and social sciences. A total of 16,000 books will be published online by 2020. The platform aims to build an international library while encouraging publishers to develop Open Access in the long term. It is open to publications in all languages and from all fields of research in the humanities and social sciences.

Titles available from each publisher are displayed on the individual publisher’s page. Our referencing procedures ensure that titles enjoy maximum visibility on the web. PDFs and ePubs can be purchased by libraries and are on sale from digital bookstores.
