York St John University joins OLH LPS model

Posted by Martin Paul Eve on 21 August 2017

We are extremely pleased to announce that York St John University has joined the Open Library of Humanities' Library Partnership Subsidy system. Located in the centre of the historic city of York, York St John University is an outstanding university, known for its academic excellence and responsive nature. The university’s research strategy promotes interdisciplinary research and aims to develop critical mass in areas of research strength in each of its academic schools.

The Open Library of Humanities is an academic-led, gold open-access publisher with no author-facing charges. With funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the platform covers its costs by payments from an international library consortium, rather than any kind of author fee.

Professor Martin Paul Eve, a founder and academic project director of the OLH, welcomed York St John: “We are thrilled to have York St John University on board with our Library Partnership Subsidy scheme. Every university that joins contributes to our ongoing sustainability and scalability programme, achieving an equitable route to open access in the humanities.”

Libraries interested in joining the OLH Library Partnership Subsidy model should use our online signup system. If your country or region is not listed, please contact Martin Paul Eve.
