Delft University Press was founded in 1972 and was recognized as a scientific publisher four years later. DUP published books, theses and scientific journals for many years. The publishing house was sold to IOS Press in 2005.
Several years later a new publishing initiative took place at TU Delft. Open access publishing platform TU Delft Open was established in 2016
The Faculty of Architecture had a major contribution in this process. Journals, dissertations and monographs were published under open access. TU Delft Library started a limited of open access journals with the OJS model.
Educational material in the form of Open textbooks was added to TU Delft Open portfolio in 2018.
