Maastricht University has joined the Open Library of Humanities’ Library Partnership Subsidy system. FASoS researchers in particular may benefit from this partnership. You can choose to publish in one of the peer-reviewed journals of this Open Access publisher.
The Open Library of Humanities (OLH) is an academic-led, gold Open Access (OA) publisher. The platform covers its costs by payments from an international library consortium, including a couple of Dutch universities. Not asking individual authors to pay article processing charges probably advances OA in the humanities. OLH articles are available for free, for everyone, for ever.
Publishing with OLH
Publishing with the OLH gives scholars the opportunity to combine the best of traditional academic practice with the latest advances in publishing technology. The peer review system ensures that articles are subject to a rigorous review process. Scholarly annotations mean that readers can highlight, annotate and comment on articles.
The number of available OLH journals is small, but these journals cover many disciplines of the humanities. One of the OLH journals mirrors the name of the publisher: Open Library of Humanities. This journal open to submissions from researchers working in any humanities’ discipline in any language.
