Open Access

In alignment with the values of Purdue University, the Press is committed to maximizing the impact of its scholarship. To that end, we are a proud supporter of open access (OA), releasing many of our titles free of charge, including most of our journals. Below is a list of our OA books, which continues to expand with new and select backlist titles periodically released in open access format. Clicking the links below will take you to the titles hosted on Purdue’s institutional repository, Purdue e-Pubs, where the material can be downloaded free of charge. Most of our OA books can also be found through Project MUSE, JSTOR, and OAPEN.
