Open Access eBooks

Open access books (OAB) are digitized books that are freely available on the internet for anyone to read, copy, print, download and use for research or any other lawful purpose. Open access books are sustained and produced by the academic and scientific communities that edit and produce them. OABs are:

  • recent books that have been made available for free to the public under a creative commons copyright license 
  • digitized versions of books that are a part of the public domain
    Note: a book enters the public domain 70 years after the original author's death or 95 years after the publication of a corporate work
  • scholarly works that should be properly acknowledged and cited just like any other scholarly work
