BILNAS Open Access Policy

For the last few years, BILNAS has been actively moving towards the full Open Access of its publications. The BILNAS Open Access Monograph series started in 2018 and we have been steadily converting our older publications into Open Access – now available either on this website or through our partners JSTOR, OAPEN, and

UKRI’s latest Open Access policy states that from January 2024 long-form publications will be subject to OA requirements, so that all publicly funded research is accessible. This is a welcome development and will be a significant contribution to the support our authors have already been receiving through various funding bodies.

If your work is the result of a UKRI-funded grant, you are eligible for a grant for Open Access publication. Applications opened on November 28 2023:

All submitting authors should get in touch with BILNAS in the first instance to discuss funding possibilities; we will support you through any grant applications.

In conjunction with the values of Open Access, our books are all published with Creative Commons licences.


BILNAS has now made some of its older publications available as Open Access books. In addition, our Open Access Monograph series will be making many of our titles Open Access on publication.

These titles are available to both members and non-members, for digital download, in the following formats:

  • PDF (best for desktop)
  • EPUB (best for Nook, Kobo, Sony Reader and most tablets)
  • MOBI (best for Kindle)
