Project Aims to Bring PLoS-Style Openness to the Humanities - Technology - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Project Aims to Bring PLoS-Style Openness to the Humanities - Technology - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Open Research & Learning | Scoop.it

"Open access isn't just for scientists. Opening up research is an idea that appeals to more and more humanists and social scientists. The trick has been how those fields can support the open sharing of research.

Several recent publishing ventures and platforms, including the Open Humanities Press and Anvil Academic, are investigating how to bring more open-access journals and monographs online. A brand-spanking-new nonprofit organization, called the Open Library of Humanities, aims to create a humanities-and-social-sciences version of the successful Public Library of Science, or PLoS ( http://www.plos.org/ ), which in the past decade has established itself as a major presence in open-access, peer-reviewed scientific publishing. Like PLoS, the Open Library of Humanities, or OLH, will be peer-reviewed." - from source: http://chronicle.com/

ghbrett's insight:

This is a significant in that it illustrates just how much the Humanities are moving forward in the open movement as well as expanding their digital footprint. It's role model the Public Library of Science ( http://www.plos.org/ ) has proven it's value with various platforms and channels such as journals, blogs, networks, Hubs, Collection and News Aggregation. So, the Public Library of Humanities should prove a great resource and nexus for the increasing digital resources for Digital Humanists everywhere.

The open access debate

 Journal publishers have a monopoly. The surface progress of openness belies a deeper, more dramatic period of conflict around openness that is only now beginning.
