We are extremely pleased to announce that the University of Cambridge has joined the Open Library of Humanities’ Library Partnership Subsidy system. The mission of the University of Cambridge, one of the world’s top research institutions, is to contribute to society through the pursuit of education, learning, and research at the highest international levels of excellence.
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 Cambridge: “The University of Cambridge needs no introduction. I am delighted that Cambridge has joined the OLH LPS model to make humanities scholarship and research available to the widest audience.”
Journals wishing to join the platform should submit an initial enquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org. 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: email@example.com. UK-based libraries can join through Jisc Collections at http://www.jisc-collections.ac.uk/Catalogue/Overview/Index/2120. US-based libraries can join through LYRASIS at https://lyrasis.openlibhums.org.
