Reverse publishing is the publication by a traditional publisher of an on-line manuscript freely accessible on the internet, in the form of a book destined to be sold in a brick and mortar library. One of the first examples in France was Rater mieux de Barberine, first put on-line by French publisher Léo Scheer, later available in paper form and coined by Scheer as rétropublication. Another well-documented case is Bertelsmann publishing a book version of the German Wikipedia.
