Revision as of 15:09, 4 July 2012

  • On this page I'll post updates and other notes on my book, Open Access, MIT Press, 2012.   —Peter Suber.

About the book

  • The Kindle edition is available now. Digital editions in a dozen other formats will roll out over the summer.
  • Sorry, I don't control review copies. To get a review copy, contact MIT Press.

Comments welcome

  • I plan to launch some kind of site, other than this page, where I can gather and respond to reader comments. I welcome suggestions about the best way to do that. Meantime, I welcome comments on the book itself.

Updates

  • In this section, I'll post updates to the text. Some didn't fit into the book because the book is deliberately short. (I was already over my wordcount.) Some couldn't appear in the book because they were not published until after my text was final in the spring of 2011.
  • I'll probably start posting updates here in August, when the paperback edition comes out. Then each update can cite the book by page number or endnote number. Watch this space.
