OA books publishing

We offer authors the option of publishing their monographs or Cambridge Elements as OA, allowing them to make their work freely available without compromising any aspect of the publishing process. All OA books publishing by Cambridge pass through the same rigorous peer review and production process as any non-OA monograph.
