Six Journals Set to Join Open Library of Humanities by End of 2016, Policy Change Also Announced
From an OLH Announcement:
We are extremely pleased to announce that six journals are to join the Open Library of Humanities platform later this year. The voting process was highly competitive, with sixteen applications to join the platform in the Spring-Summer 2016 period.
89.19% of the OLH Library Board voted in favour of all six journals joining.
This will bring the number of journals published on the OLH platform to 18 journals, covering the disciplines of: Architectural Studies, Asian Studies, Comics Scholarship, Contemporary Literature, Cultural Studies, Digital Humanities, Linguistics, Performance & Screen Studies, Phonology, Renaissance & Early Modern Literature, and Victorian Studies; as well as the OLH megajournal which publishes across the humanities disciplines.
Full details about the six journals will be coming shortly.
The announcement also announces a change at OLH:
From 2017, the Open Library of Humanities will only consider applications from existing, subscription journals and will not be able to accept applications from journals that are already open access or from editors wishing to set up new journals.
