The OpenEdition Freemium programme

OpenEdition Freemium is a programme for the development of open access academic publishing in the humanities and social sciences. This partnership, on offer exclusively to institutions (libraries, campuses, research institutes) aims to create an innovative and sustainable economic model. All income generated by the programme is reinvested in the development of open access academic publishing.

Our platforms disseminate open access content – journals, books, research blogs and academic announcements – complemented by premium services and formats available exclusively to institutions and their users.

Our Freemium content is available to all Internet users in open access HTML format, while users of partner institutions can download the PDF and ePub formats. No DRM or download quotas are applied.

OpenEdition Freemium comprises two complementary sales offers:

Regardless of which programme you choose, the high standard of associated services makes it straightforward to integrate Freemium content into library catalogues and discovery tools.
