As a not-for-profit organisation, we deliberately keep our book prices low (usually, these days, around 20–25% of what most academic presses charge for similar titles) in order to make sure that our books are affordable to as wide an audience as possible.

We don't allow PDFs of published chapters from our books to be posted on Open Access sites or in Personal or University Repositories, but we do allow the original Word file to be posted. This applies to contributions to edited collections and journal articles, but not to chapters from sole authored books, textbooks and reference works. The only exceptions are titles commissioned under a Creative Commons License.A note should be included indicating that the [pre-print] is what has been posted, and ideally a link to the book’s page on their website should also be included eg. http://www.hartpub.co.uk/BookDetails.aspx?ISBN=9781841137322.
