For authors - negotiate with your publisher
Making books available online increases substantially their accessibility. Making them available for free is the commitment of Globethics.net with our online library of over 5 million documents and our own 130 books, all available online free of charge.
If you are an author still publishing with a commercial publisher who would like to make your work more widely available for free, we invite you to consider negotiating with your publisher the right to place your book after a grace period (6 or 12 months) online in the Globethics Library.
More and more commercial publishers are agreeing to allow books to be made available since the majority of sales are mainly in the first year.
The most recent example of such a successful negotiation is a book by one of our Globethics.net partners, Stephan Rothlin, "International Business Ethics", which was published with Springer 2016 that can now be consulted and downloaded for free from our online library!
If you need support or information in the negotiations with your publisher, Dr Ignace Haaz, Managing Editor of Globethics Publications, is happy to advise you. You can write to him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
