Norwegian University of Science and Technology becomes first Norwegian institution to join OLH LPS model


We are extremely pleased to announce that the Norwegian University of Science and Technology has joined the Open Library of Humanities’ Library Partnership Subsidy system. NTNU has strong research communities in science and technology, the social sciences, teacher education, the arts and humanities, medicine, architecture and fine art.

The Open Library of Humanities is an academic-led, gold open-access publisher with no author-facing charges. With funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the platform covers its costs by payments from an international library consortium, rather than any kind of author fee.

Dr. Martin Paul Eve, a founder and academic project director of the OLH, welcomed NTNU: “I am delighted that NTNU has become the first Norwegian institution to join the OLH model. We need equitable, sustainable and scalable solutions for a transition to OA in the humanities and, with the help of institutions like NTNU, we will work towards this.”

Marius Warholm Haugen, Senior Research Librarian, added: “We are exited about being able to contribute to the important work that OLH is doing for open access in the Humanities. We strongly encourage other academic libraries in Norway and in the Nordic countries to become partners.”

Journals wishing to join the platform should submit an initial enquiry to After the September launch of the OLH, applications will be be subject to the platform's joining procedure. Libraries outside the US and UK interested in joining the OLH Library Partnership Subsidy model should contact Dr. Martin Paul Eve: UK-based libraries can join through Jisc Collections at US-based libraries can join through LYRASIS at
