About Open Square

Welcome to knowledge without boundaries!

Open Square is NYU Press’s platform for publishing and reading open access books. A browser-based reading platform, Open Square enables us to increase the impact of scholarly work by making it freely available in a digital format and to experiment with new ways of presenting scholarship and adding enhanced content to traditionally published books. Open Square features new and recently published titles as well as a growing library of classic backlist publications. NYU Press is committed to expanding our offerings in both categories.

Print copies of any of these books can be purchased by clicking the “Buy the Book” link on each title’s detail page.

This site uses Readium, an open source software package for handling EPUB documents. The site was developed by our colleagues in the NYU Libraries Digital Library Technology Services department. Development is ongoing, and new features and improvements are planned.

Open Square is optimized for use on Chrome and Firefox browsers on Mac and Windows.
