The imprint has been a leader in dissemination of electronic texts, with their front- and backlists of titles available online since 1996. According to a 1999 article in "Publishers Weekly", NAP reported about $10 million a year in revenues, about half from book sales and half from providing publishing, printing and Web services to its institution and to academic and university presses.

NAP/JHP Executive Director Barbara Kline Pope has written a widely-cited article on NAP's successes in electronic publishing. In it, she tells why the National Academies Press decided to give away its content, how it retained its intellectual property, what happened, and why she thinks others might do the same.Pope, Barbara Kline (1999).
