E-IR Open Access Book Proposals

E-International Relations is a non-profit publisher dedicated to providing free and accessible scholarly materials to students and academics around the world. Our open access books present new and innovative scholarship from emerging and established researchers. We publish monographs, edited collections and foundational textbooks.

Each book we produce is available in free PDF and web versions – and also sold in paperback worldwide. A unique open access publishing model operated at no financial cost to authors (we cover all production and hosting costs) and no cost to readers, unless they want to buy a hard copy.

Our books are available to over 35,000 retailers in 190 countries, from Amazon right down to your neighbourhood book store. And, the free digital versions of each book are avaialble to an audience of over 3 million readers. Open access in the fullest sense: a model that ensures the widest dissemination in the field.
