At Leiden University Press we publish most of our books in a digital format. The majority of our books are published as e-book and some of our books are available via Open Access.


At LUP we have chosen to publish all our books as e-book – in the e-pdf as well as the e-pub format. Our e-books are available via Ebrary and eBoekhuis.


Open Access

Leiden University Press is a supporter of Open Access publishing. As university press we are part of the academic environment and we see Open Access as an opportunity to enhance the dissemination of academic research.

Our Open Access books are available in the Leiden Repository.

For our Open Access books we are partner of OAPEN.



Leiden University Press is proud to publish two academic Open Access journals. All articles published in these journals are peer reviewed and upon acceptance are immediately and permanently free for everyone to read and download.
