  • 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.
  • The book will become OA in June 2013, one year from the date of publication. If you can't wait that long, everything I've said in the book I've said in some form or another in an OA article, probably more than once.
  • Sorry, I don't control review copies. To get a review copy, contact MIT Press.

Comments and ideas 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.


  • In this section, I'll post updates to the text. Some didn't fit into the book because we wanted the book to be 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've already got plenty to post and only need to find some time. Watch this space.
