"Particularly well organized and offering a first-choice program, the conference will remain in my memory as one of the most interesting that I was able to attend. Long confined to very marginal position of experimentation, the open access publication of books in the humanities is clearly becoming important today. It is true that the debate on open access to research results after the Finch report or the european recommendation, was focused until now not on humanities monographs, but rather on journals, and firstly in science. Nevertheless, the great hall of the Conference Center of the BL was packed and it reflected the growing interest in this issue in the academic community. And from beginning to end of the conference, we felt very clearly that the context was changing. Complementarity with the Berlin Conference EPA in 2013 that I was also able to attend earlier this year is remarkable: more technical and more focused on economic models, the Berlin conference also showed the same trend. In London, the conversation was more theoretical, more intellectual, and was just as interesting."
