University of Geneva joins OLH LPS model
Posted by Martin Paul Eve on 2017-08-30
We are extremely pleased to announce that the University of Geneva has joined the Open Library of Humanities' Library Partnership Subsidy system. Founded in 1559 by Jean Calvin, the University of Geneva (UNIGE) is dedicated to thinking, teaching, dialogue and research. With 16’500 students of more than 150 different nationalities, it is Switzerland’s second largest university. Just like the city of Geneva itself, the university enjoys a strong international reputation, both for the quality of its research (it ranks among the top institutions among the League of European Research Universities) and the excellence of its education.
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 the University of Geneva: “It is fantastic to have the support of the University of Geneva. Open access is important for the dissemination of high-quality research and that goes as much for the humanities as for the natural sciences. With the help of institutions such as Geneva we will continue to expand our model for OA in the humanities without APCs.”
