Carl Grossmann Publishers, an open access academic book publisher, has announced its new open access book hosting services on ScienceOpen. On the forefront of cross-media publishing, Carl Grossmann Publishers make their titles available not only in print and online, but also in all electronic formats: PDF, EPUB, and MOBI for mobile readers, e-book apps, and Amazon Kindle.
Moreover, they offer authors a transparent calculation/cost scheme to set out the steps and connected costs of the publishing process. This is a welcome counter model to many academic publishers, which either do not offer such broad range of digital format outputs or open access publishing, or ask for astronomic prices without offering any insight as to the allocation of expenses nor any detailed information about the actual services being provided. The Carl Grossmann Verlag seeks to grow their open access portfolio German and English and all of their titles can be explored in an attractive Carl Grossmann Books collection on ScienceOpen.
ScienceOpen is supporting Carl Grossmann Publishers with new modular open access book hosting services. Specific technical and promotional solutions included are e.g. a streamlined metadata management interface, Crossref DOI registration for books and chapters, long-term archiving with CLOCKSS, ORCID integration, an additional manuscript submission channel, and promotion of their publications within the context of a discovery environment of more than 66 million records on ScienceOpen. Each book page displays transparent book metrics and offers interactive features for readers such as one-click share and integrated recommendation and commenting functionalities. The features and services are an easy way particularly for small and mid-size publishers to manage metadata and hosting of book titles or book chapters.
