We are extremely pleased to announce that Brock University has joined the Open Library of Humanities’ Library Partnership Subsidy system. Brock University is located atop the Niagara Escarpment and is positioning itself as a world leader in trans-disciplinary research.
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 Brock: “It is excellent to have Brock University on board the OLH model as part of the OCUL consortium. As more institutions, like Brock, join the OLH model we will be able to expand our platform as part of an open-access ecosystem for the humanities.”
Existing subscription journals wishing to move to the platform should submit an initial enquiry to email@example.com. Libraries outside the US and UK interested in joining the OLH Library Partnership Subsidy model should contact Dr. Martin Paul Eve: firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
