A new generation of academic publishing
Sidestone Press is an academic publishing house founded by scholars, for scholars. As a publisher we have one clear ambition, which is to make scientific information available to everyone. We believe scientific information should be available at all times, in all places and to each and every one. This means that the printing and selling of books is but one part of what we believe a good publisher should do.
Sidestone books are published both as hardcopy printed books and as digital e-books that can be found in libraries and bookstores around the world. In addition to this, Sidestone books can also be freely accessed online through different channels such as Google Books, Google Scholar and through our own digital ebook library. By offering access to our books for free, more people than ever have access to our publications. First of all this is beneficial to our authors as it greatly increases the exposure of their work, and in effect, the impact of their research. Second, of course, it enables our readers – scholars and students around the world – to access our publications at any time and in any place, including those parts of the world where access to good quality academic libraries is not guaranteed.
Sidestone Library Program
Sidestone launches a new Library Program that provides members of academic libraries with unlimited access to our e-books. By subscribing to our Academic Library program, member libraries receive full access to all Sidestone e-books. All library members (staff, students, alumni) can freely download PDF files of our e-books. In addition, all users receive 25% discount on our printed books.

Sidestone Book presented to H.M. Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands
The royal estate near Apeldoorn (Veluwe) is scattered with prehistoric barrows. In recent years a team of Leiden archaeologists led by dr. David Fontijn investigated some of these during two excavation campaigns. The results of the first of these campaigns, focussing on two barrows near ‘The Echoput’ were presented to H.M. Queen Beatrix.
