About the Book Hosting Service

Edinburgh Diamond, a service provided by Edinburgh University Library, uses Open Monograph Press (OMP) to support the publication of academic and student-led Open Access books. Find out more about what we offer, our policies and the key benefits of using our OMP platform and service.

What We Offer

The Library helps academics and students publish their own online monographs, textbooks and edited collections, or migrate existing titles, and provides a hosting platform, training and ongoing advice, guidance and technical support. Some key benefits of our service are listed below.


Roles and Responsibilities

More details on what you can expect from the Library's service can be found on the following page: 


There is a Service Board comprising Library staff, editorial representatives from both academic and student-led journals, a representative from Edinburgh University Press and representatives from our external partners. The Board meets twice a year and ensures the service develops in line with the University's strategic objectives and customer requirements. The Service Board reports to the University's Library Committee.
