an Open Library of Humanities

Following the model of the Public Library of Sciences (PLoS) a group of Humanities scholars, librarians and technologists are setting up a similar platform for the Humanities, a platform for Open Access publishing that aims to be: “Reputable and respected through rigorous peer review, Sustainable, Digitally preserved and safely archived in perpetuity, Non-profit, Open in both monetary and permission terms, Non-discriminatory, Technically innovative in response to the needs of scholars and librarians”, and in doing so, help to solve the serials crisis caused by unsustainable institutional prices.
