Diversifying readership through open access: A usage analysis for OA books is a new white paper by Springer Nature and COARD based on usage data for 3,934 books, including 281 open access books.

This white paper presents the analysis of that data, exploring what effect, if any, publishing OA has on the geographic usage of books. The findings will be of interest to researchers, authors, librarians and publishers alike.

The white paper PDF and a zip file of all figures within the white paper have been attached. These figures can be used in presentations. All are released under a CC BY 4.0 licence.
