The Open Access platform CrossAsia-eBooks offers researchers in Asian Studies a possibility to publish their research in time and free of charges.

  • The Specialised Information Service Asia provides the basic set up as well as the hosting of the Open Monograph Press (OMP) software, the technical platform for your e-book.
  • The Specialised Information Service Asia assists you in clarifying rights vis-à-vis publishers, manages the upload of your data files and provides the bibliographic records in national and international catalogues.

If you are interested, contact us – even if you are still in the planning phase for your open access e-book or if you wish to convert your existing print publication into an electronic edition.
