Open Monograph Systems

With the launch of UCT Libraries’ Open Monograph Publishing in January 2016, the University joined a handful of international academic libraries that publish freely accessible scholarly books. Scholars and information seekers around the world now have unrestricted access to and reuse of the books or monographs published on the Open Monograph Press platform. The development is part of UCT’s open access strategy to showcase institutional scholarship broadly, and supports the university’s teaching, learning and research enterprises.
