Digital Scholarship @ CUA: Open Library of the Humanities Launches

Open – it is a trend! Just announced this week, the Open Library of the Humanities is launched. This is a platform currently hosting seven journal titles. See the titles here.

Dr. Martin Eve and Dr. Caroline Edwards acknowledge that starting a new journal or (in this case) a new journal platform is even more dicey in 2015 than it was in previous decades of economic turmoil. They also speak to the concern of “open” in the humanities, that the economic models of APC’s (article processing charges) do not work in the humanities. Their hope for this new platform is for it to be “the seed of a scalable model for journal transition to open access in the humanities that does not rely on payment from authors or readers.”
