MIT Press Direct to Open (D2O) benefits libraries, readers, and authors

Direct to Open, our diamond open access publishing model, makes scholarship freely available to readers worldwide

For nearly three decades, the MIT Press has been driven by a fundamental question: How can we make scholarship more open, inclusive, and accessible? 

This mission is what inspired us to launch Direct to Open (D2O) in 2021. D2O is a diamond open access publishing model that has since published more than 80 scholarly monographs and edited collections each year. 

Libraries: We want to work with you on this scalable and sustainable open access publishing model that benefits your faculty, students, and information seekers.

Authors: We make it easy to reach more readers (our D2O books have been accessed more than 300,000 times already!) and to comply with open access requirements from your funders or universities. Learn about publishing with MIT Press.

Readers: Discover our open access collections—hundreds of peer-reviewed titles from a wide range of subjects—freely available to read now.
