Open access books

Making the case for open access books. Interesting article from The Guardian by Simon Chaplin.  A good look at the humanities and book publishing – “Through open access, they can reach a wider audience than ever before”.  http://www.theguardian.com/science/political-science/2013/jun/13/open-access-books
