Questions to guide good practice

  • Are books indexed in an external catalogue – for example the Directory of Open Access Books?
  • Has consideration been given to hosting books on a third party platform (e.g. Project Muse, Zenodo), potentially in addition to on the publisher's own website?

  • If using a print on demand service, how are hard copies of books distributed? Have distributors with local specialisms been considered alongside those that sell internationally?
