It’s been 7 years from publishing our first book, Cutting Edge Robotics, and only two years from celebrating our fifth anniversary with a reissue. Following the unstoppable growth rate of open access literature, and of course, suspicious star alignments and numerological calculations for the year 2012, we now count more than 1000 open access books.
We welcome you to explore the abundance of free-for-all information that we still tend to call by names such as “journals” or “books”, brought to you by scientists on a quest for a web of open that will not end the Gutenberg era, but fulfill what Gutenberg has promised: “It is a press, certainly, but a press from which shall flow in inexhaustible streams a spring of truth: like a new star it shall scatter the darkness of ignorance, and cause a light heretofore unknown to shine amongst men.”
1000th in line, Advanced Transmission Techniques in WiMAX was published in January, 2012, its theme “a communication technology for wirelessly delivering high-speed Internet service to large geographical areas,” only to speed up world-wide electronic distribution of literature available without barriers to each mind eager to – learn. Thank you all for joining our effort to open up access to learning, thinking, understanding!
