Just because a publication is open access does not mean it is discoverable. Open access publishers work hard to ensure that open access publications are available in all the places that you would expect to find a non-open access book.

Publishers should make sure that the open access edition of your book is clearly listed next to the printed and other editions that are for sale either online or in a more traditional publisher catalogue. Some publishers have their own platforms, or websites, where they are able to host open access books for readers to freely download.
