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.

Print copies are available for all books directly from each book's web page

If you are from outside Australia, choose the Amazon copy if it is available so you avoid international postage.
