The results of your research should be accessible free of charge to as broad a readership as possible, but you do not want to miss out on the content and Mohr Siebeck’s reputation and ensure the uniform citability of your research? With this in mind, we are pleased to offer a hybrid solution for your open access publication.
Tailored to your needs and the specifications of your institution, your work will appear both as a printed book in the usual series format and digitally in the form of a freely accessible PDF file.
Your work can go open access either as soon as the printed publication appears or after an embargo period of two years, for example. A work that you have already published with us can also be rendered open access at any time.
The publication process is largely the same as for a traditional book publication, irrespective of the embargo period selected. When the printed work is published or after the agreed embargo period has expired, we will send you a PDF version of your work suitable for use in open access. An overview of the titles that are already open access can be found here.
We charge a publication fee for your open access publication. This applies to current titles as well as works that previously appeared in our program. The size of the fee depends on numerous factors and can therefore vary considerably from case to case. You will receive an individual quote from the respective program director.
The Creative Commons License CC-BY-NC-ND 4.0 renders your publication internationally usable under clear conditions without violating your substantive rights as the author (BY: attribution of the author; NC: no commercial use; ND: no modification of the content, e.g., translation).
For questions regarding the further use and secondary exploitation of open access titles, please contact our rights manager.
Visibility, indexing and marketing
Your open access publication will be made freely accessible as a specially prepared PDF file on the Mohr Siebeck eLibrary and listed in relevant subject databases and indexing services. In addition, you can post the PDF file of your work yourself on institutional or subject-specific repositories at any time.
In addition, your publication will further benefit from the following services:
