Vortrag: How the Humanities are Changing Academic Publishing

von Dr. Caroline Edwards (Mitbegründerin der Open Library of Humanities) am 5. Juli 2016 in der Aula der Akademie der bildenden Künste (Schillerplatz 3,1010 Wien).

Eine der größten Herausforderungen des akademischen Publizierens in den nächsten Jahren wird es sein, wie neben einigen wenigen und immer weniger werdenden Großverlagen alternative, nicht kommerzielle Publikationsmodelle erhalten bzw. neu etabliert werden können. Eines der erfolgversprechendsten Modelle ist die Open Library of Humanities (OLH).

Abstract: 

This talk will consider the rapidly changing open access (OA) landscape and its impact on academic research, with a particular focus on humanities scholarship. Dr Caroline Edwards is a Founder and Director of the Open Library of Humanities (OLH), which launched in September 2015 as a publishing platform for “gold” OA journals, with no author-facing charges. The OLH has been a pioneer in building an international consortium of library-supported funding – known as the Library Partnership Subsidy (LPS) – and other disciplinary fields are now looking towards this new model of funding gold OA publishing. With partners such as the Dutch linguistics network, Ling-OA, the OLH is demonstrating how subscription journals can be “flipped” to open access in a sustainable way. Dr Edwards will outline how the OLH has grown and what it can offer scholars in terms of bringing together the best of traditional publishing and editorial practices with cutting-edge technological innovations in digital publishing and infrastructure.
