Apress Media, LLC, a publisher of technology books, launched ApressOpen, a program that offers technology companies and professionals the opportunity to publish technical and business content under an open access model. With ApressOpen, content will be freely available through multiple online distribution channels and electronic formats with the goal of disseminating professionally edited and technically reviewed content to the worldwide community.

Apress has also announced that it is working with Intel Corp. to publish at least 10 books under the ApressOpen brand. Intel is providing assistance with content architecture with resources from its Industry Education Office. “Our aim is to publish content that is strategically aligned with industry-leading companies and globally recognized, topic-expert authors who are on the cutting edge of innovative technologies. Making the resulting content free and available to the widest possible audience will assure great, favorable impact for the computer industry and other industries over time. We’re excited to work with Intel on some of our first ApressOpen titles, so that the computer industry may quickly benefit from Intel’s unique insights in computer innovation,” says Jeffrey M. Pepper, assistant publisher at Apress.

ApressOpen content will be distributed on SpringerLink with more than 122 million unique visitors per year as well as on Apress.com, Intel.com, and all major ebook and database platforms.
