A work is considered to be Open Access when it is available to read for free in its entirety, without any restriction on who can access it.

In other words, publication are available online and freely accessible to all without any restriction except use for commercial purposes.


We need to charge a small fee for our PDFs to offset our production costs. We charge handling fees which is very little for our printed books, so PDFs are a vital revenue source to help us keep our books affordable and free online. In the future we aim at raising enough income from grants and sales to stop charging for PDFs.


The internet has revolutionised the way publishers can operate. We use print-on-demand technology, which means we have no wasted print runs. All our staff work in a 'virtual' office, which keeps our overhead costs down. We have a network of volunteers who generously give their time, and we have been assisted along the way by donations from individuals and grant-giving bodies who support our GATR mission.
