Posted on November 07, 2015 by UCL Press

UCL Press is excited to announce a waiver of its Book Publication Charge (BPC) for a number of selected non-UCL authors. The waiver scheme demonstrates UCL’s commitment to Open Access publishing and our awareness of the challenges faced by non-funded authors.

We will consider any books of exceptional quality – monographs, edited volumes and textbooks – that offer a distinct voice, have the potential to make an impact, and are written in an engaging and accessible tone. Please note that special preference may be given to early career researchers.

Authors who wish to be considered for the scheme should note their interest in an accompanying email when they submit their proposal. Successful books will be selected based on peer review reports and the views of the UCL Editorial Board.

Please address any questions to the Commissioning Editor, Chris Penfold, at
