Coming in January 2016: Four Subscription Journals Flipping to Pure Gold Open Access Using Open Library of Humanities Platform
We are very pleased to announce that four journals are to move away from a subscription environment into a pure gold open access mode with support from the Open Library of Humanities and the OLH library consortia. This follows the first OLH Library Board vote, where 98% of votes cast were in favour of flipping all four journals.
In January 2016, C21: Journal of 21st-century Writings will move to the OLH platform. In addition, Laboratory Phonology, the Journal of Portuguese Linguistics and Glossa will be published by Ubiquity Press, moving to the OLH platform and model after the initial funding period. These latter journals are part of the LingOA initiative in which the OLH participates. LingOA is initially funded by The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research NWO and the Association of Dutch Universities (VSNU), which substantially reduces costs for our members in the startup phase.
