Journal applications to join the OLH

The Open Library of Humanities can either publish or fund a journal to become fully gold open-access with no author-facing charges. We welcome applications from journals that meet the following requirements:

  1. Are peer reviewed.
  2. Have been established for at least five years.
  3. Are currently funded through a subscription model.
  4. Are based in a humanities discipline, as self-defined by authors and editors.
  5. Have an international editorial board.

In addition, we have a preference for journals that are owned by a learned society.

If your journal meets the above requirements, we would be very happy to discuss options for either funding your existing publisher to make the journal open access or to take on publication ourselves.
