The University of Groningen is the first Dutch university to join the
Open Library of Humanities
Library Partnership Subsidy system.
The Open Library of Humanities (OLH) is an academically led, gold open access publisher. The OLH has no author-facing charges and is instead funded by an international library consortium.
Originally funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Open Library of Humanities is hosting its own peer-reviewed trans-disciplinary megajournal, as well as separate journals and e-books. Partners are encouraged to get actively involved with the OLH.
Existing, established journals are invited to become open access on the OLH platform.
Furthermore, Cambridge University Press , Harvard University Press, Open Book Publishers and Oxford University Press have in principle reached an agreement to publish an open access e-books series on the OLH platform.
Many established international universities have already joined the OLH partnership, such as Yale University, the University of St. Andrews, the University of Pennsylvania, and our G4 partner Uppsala University.
This partnership is in agreement with other initiatives supported by the University of Groningen Library to promote open access in the Humanities & Social Sciences, such as:
