Liverpool University Press are pleased to announce that The University of Edinburgh is a new subscribing member to their Opening the Future programme.

The library at The University of Edinburgh has decided to support the press’ OA commitment by selecting an OA Supporter package without backlist access.

As with all Opening the Future members, the library’s subscription fees are funding new frontlist titles in OA format so that everyone, including their users, will benefit from the global open collection it contributes to. 

Through the generous support of member libraries like them all over the world, Liverpool University Press has already been able to publish several new OA books (with more funded and planned) which are freely available for download from Project MUSE, OAPEN, JSTOR and other open platforms. You can read about, and access, all the OA books on the progress page:
