University of Washington joins OLH LPS model
Posted by James Smith on 2018-05-10
We are extremely pleased to announce that the University of Washington has joined the Open Library of Humanities' Library Partnership Subsidy system. The University of Washington is one of the world’s preeminent public universities. The UW’s impact on individuals, their region and the world is profound — whether the University is launching young people into a boundless future or confronting the grand challenges of our time through undaunted research and scholarship. Ranked No. 13 in the world on the 2017 Academic Ranking of World Universities, the UW educates more than 54,000 students annually.
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 Washington: “The University of Washington’s support for our platform is invaluable. We cannot provide our author-fee-free model of open access without institutional support. With this support we will continue to expand our model for OA in the humanities.”
