Press Release

10 years of Open Access Books at De Gruyter – 10 Winning Titles!

Winning titles of De Gruyter’s Open Access Book Anniversary competition announced

Berlin, 27 September 2021

In late 2020, De Gruyter celebrated its 10th open access book anniversary with a call for book proposals and invited scientists and scholars globally to submit their book projects for OA publication. The 10 winning titles will be published by De Gruyter in OA without any author publication fees to support the development of open research.

With this prize, De Gruyter celebrates the 10 year anniversary of its first open access book publication. In 2010, De Gruyter published the Handbuch Bibliothek 2.0, its first open access book. Since then, the publishing house has developed into one of the world’s largest open access book publishers with over 3.000 open access books available on degruyter.com.

Under the headline “10 Topics, 10 Books, 10 Weeks” the publishing house based in Berlin received almost 120 entries for this competition within 10 weeks. An expert committee of renowned researchers from a variety of academic disciplines reviewed all of the submissions and ultimately had to make some hard choices.

Academics worldwide, from all subject areas, told De Gruyter about their monograph ideas, their envisioned audiences, and a little about themselves. After a thorough review process, De Gruyter is now very happy to announce the 10 winning titles:

·        Lena Zschunke: „Engel in der Moderne. Eine Figur zwischen Exilgegenwart und Zukunftsvision“ (The Angel in Modernity. A figure between exiled presence and future vision)

“After the careful selection process by our experts, we can now announce the winners of our Open Access call for papers. We are very pleased with this selection of exciting, highly relevant publications that reflect the diversity of our OA book program. We are sure that the titles will get the attention they deserve through OA publication,” says Maria Zucker, Manager Open Access Books at De Gruyter.

The winners will receive an immediate Open Access publication available on www.degruyter.com plus services such as indexing and distribution. The books will also be available as print editions. Furthermore, the winning titles will be presented via short author interviews on the blog De Gruyter Conversations, starting with Dominique Haensell and her title “Making black history”. Dominique Haensell is editor-in-chief of the feminist Missy Magazine.
