• Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg joins OLH LPS model

    Posted by Martin Paul Eve on 2017-12-08

We are extremely pleased to announce that Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg has joined the Open Library of Humanities' Library Partnership Subsidy system. Founded in 1502, Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg has been a place of scientific enlightenment, academic development and future-oriented research for over 500 years. The institution is the largest university in the state of Saxony-Anhalt.

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 Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg: “It is fantastic to have the support of Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg. Open access is increasingly important for the dissemination of research work to wide publics – and why should the humanities be exempt? With the support of institutions such as Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg we will continue to expand our model for OA in the humanities, with neither author-facing, nor reader-facing charges.”
