Hard on the heels of the open letter from the President of the Royal 
Historical Society that my colleague Andrew Prescott forwarded via 
Humanist comes a brief note from one of our new PhD students, Samuel 
Moore, as follows:

> I'm writing with my Open Book Publishers hat on. I wasn't sure

> .

As you will see Mr Jump explicitly uses the Finch Report to highlight 
what Open Book is doing. And I can say as one who has published an 
edited collection with this publisher and then recommended the same 
to the editor of a collection for which I have written, Open Book is doing a 
splendid job.
