University of Rostock joins OLH LPS model
Posted by Martin Paul Eve on 2017-11-03
We are extremely pleased to announce that the University of Rostock has joined the Open Library of Humanities' Library Partnership Subsidy system. Founded in 1419, the University of Rostock is the oldest in the Baltic Sea Region. Joint research projects with other universities, in Germany and abroad, enable networking and an expansion of the University of Rostock’s expert and expertise portfolio.
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 Rostock: “We are extremely grateful for the support of the University of Rostock. More institutions are joining our membership model every month, creating a sustainable, fee-free model for open access in the humanities.”
