Open Press, a new open publishing concept, is coming soon.

DSI at Walker Library has extended its publishing services to include open textbooks and scholarly monographs. Open Press is a digital-first, hybrid press with a mission of providing open access publishing opportunities to the communities of middle Tennessee.

Readers can enjoy our books--free to read online, while offering some titles with a modest print-on-demand option for those that prefer a printed book.

Authors can enjoy a transparent publishing process, with editorial teams that take a values-based approach to publishing. This means authors retain the rights to their work and are not charged for publishing services.

Open Press has a different mission and focus than traditional publishers, and invites you to learn more about publishing possiblities. We also welcome support from the community, and invite you to donate, helping to enable open access publishing of books for the community. More details on this coming soon.
