Discovery service for open access books

The Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB) has just been launched with over 750 academic books available under an Open Access licence.

Books are available in a range of subjects with a particularly strong presence in History and Social Sciences.

DOAB ensures that books are available to readers with as few restrictions as possible, and requires that academic books in the directory are peer reviewed prior to publication.

DOAB is a service of the OAPEN Foundation, and policies have been developed in conjunction with the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA).
