University of Adelaide Press

Free Scholarly Books

The University of Adelaide Press is an Open Access book publisher.

We publish peer-reviewed monographs and edited volumes emanating from Adelaide-led research and collaborations across the world.

The aim is to disseminate the books as widely as possible, and so we actually give away the electronic edition.

We also offer a classic print edition directly from our website and post these worldwide.

Author Feedback

'I am very impressed with the Press.  I enjoyed the review and editorial processes and thought they were both rigorous and fair, as one would expect with the best university presses.  So, yes, I would certainly publish again with you and would recommend the Press to other colleagues (and, in fact, have).'

Professor Paul Babie, Adelaide Law School, Associate Dean (Research) Professions

'One of the main reasons I chose Uni of Adelaide Press was due to the policy of free downloads.  Basically I have always believed that so-called intellectual output is public property.  This is not a timely or popular view but it certainly drew me to the Press. [...] I was thrilled with the final look.'

Professor Emeritus Carol Bacchi, Politics
