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 textbooks.

We cover all the production costs of those books we deem suitable for publication. 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 and no cost to readers, unless they want to buy a physical copy.

Our books are available to over 35,000 retailers in 190 countries, including Amazon. And, the free digital versions of each book are available to our audience of over 5 million readers annually. Open access in the fullest sense: a model that ensures the widest dissemination in the field.
