Oxford University Studies in the Enlightenment Online

The Voltaire Foundation (University of Oxford) and Liverpool University Press have agreed a strategic publishing partnership from 2018.

This includes the development of Oxford University Studies in the Enlightenment Online, a digital collection launching in September 2018 with 217 volumes from the 'Studies on Voltaire and the Eighteenth Century' and 'Oxford University Studies in the Enlightenment' series  - digitised for the first time. The remaining content from the archive will be added over the next few years, with the aim of having all volumes within the print series digitised by 2020.

It will be available for one-off purchase by libraries in 2019, with online access available in perpetuity. Purchasing institutions will be offered the option to purchase future content at a discount.
