We are extremely pleased to announce that the University of Surrey has joined the Open Library of Humanities’ Library Partnership Subsidy system. Surrey is a world-class, research-led University, committed to research 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.
Professor Martin Paul Eve, a founder and academic project director of the OLH, welcomed the University of Surrey: “It is fantastic to have support from Surrey for the Open Library of Humanities model. Surrey has a commitment in its research statements towards the furtherance of open access to research. It is fantastic that the OLH model can help with this in the humanities disciplines at the institution.”
Libraries outside the US, UK, EU or Canada interested in joining the OLH Library Partnership Subsidy model should contact Professor Martin Paul Eve: firstname.lastname@example.org.
