Open Library of Humanities

The Open Library of Humanities is a multi-journal platform for the humanities. It is funded by a worldwide library consortium of more than 200 libraries.

The Journal accepts articles from various disciplines such as ancient science, philosophy, political science and sociology, and naturally, history, too. The submitted articles are subject to a peer-review procedure. There is an anti-plagiarism checking, too.

The Journal integrates formerly subscription-based journals into its journal portfolio and converts them to Open Access. Articles benefit from advances in online journal publishing – with high-quality presentation, annotative functionality, robust digital preservation, strong discoverability and easy-to-share social media buttons. And, last but not least, a comprehensive indexing.

The University of Zurich is the first one in Switzerland to support this Journal. So, the Open Access Strategy is advancing in Switzerland, too. Please find a summary of the debates and arguments to that you im my comment in the Neue Zürcher Zeitung.
