RECEPTIO ACADEMIC PRESS welcomes and supports all efforts to make research more widely accessible and useable in ways that continue to sustain our broad mission: to serve philological and codicological research.

Open access goals:
- increase visibility of the funded research
- increase availability of needed publications
- lift barriers to dissemination beyond academia

Most of our publications are made accessible, free of charge and without any restrictions (gold OA).


Gold OA means that the final published version of an article/ a book (or Version of Record)  is permanently and freely available online for anyone, anywhere to read. 

With gold open access you can: 

Share your research anywhere you choose as soon as it’s published. 
Comply with any  funder mandates to publish OA. 
Keep copyright of your work post-publication. 
Publish under a license with few or no restrictions on how people can reuse your work. Of course, they must still credit you if they do so. 

CC BY -NC -ND permission is granted to download our books and share them free of charge, provided the source is acknowledged and it may not be used commercially in any way. 



What is Open Access?
At it’s most fundamental Open Access is when publications are freely availble online to all at no cost . The unrestricted distribution of research is especially important for authors (as their work gets seen by more people), readers (as they can access and build on the most recent work in the field) and funders (as the work they fund has broader impact by being able to reach a wider audience).
There are two routes to open access:


What is Gold open access?

Gold OA makes the final version of an article/book freely and permanently accessible for everyone, immediately after publication. Copyright for the publication is retained by the authors and most of the permission barriers are removed. 

What is Green open access?

Green OA, also referred to as self-archiving, is the practice of placing a version of an author’s manuscript into a repository, making it freely accessible for everyone. The version that can be deposited into a repository is dependent on the funder or publisher. Unlike Gold OA the copyright for these articles usually sits with the publisher of, or the society affiliated with, the title and there are restrictions as to how the work can be reused. We do not publish in Green OA.

Are your OA publications recognisable?

Our articles and books published in Open Access are clearly recognisable. Since behind each book there is a research and study work by the author, a reading work in the form of a peer-review, proofreading and a graphic work of layout, we ask in any case all those who download the material made freely available on this site to provide us with their data (name, surname and email), which will not be used for advertising purposes.
