Open Press TiU is the academic Open Access publishing house for Tilburg University and beyond. As part of the Open Science Action Plan of Tilburg University, Open Press TiU aims to accelerate Open Access in scholarly book publishing.

The Open Press TiU produces quality academic Open Access books for affordable book processing charges (or BPC’s). In accordance with the specific nature of a book (whether a monograph, a textbook, PhD thesis, a critical text edition or an essay), a matching editorial assessment will take place. We propagate initial peer review, but only to strengthen the text, not to block off publications for dubious reasons. We believe academic output should be out there as soon as possible. True quality can only be assigned in an open and democratic discussion among researchers, students and other readers.


The digital version of a book by Open Press TiU will be made available openly and freely findable on online repositories such as Google Scholar.

Additionally, a printed version can be bought online. Open Press TiU distributes the book widely among university libraries, academic communities, media and other retailers.
