• The Open Library of Humanities joins the Portico Digital preservation archive

    Posted by Paula Clemente Vega on 2021-02-10

We are very pleased to announce that the Open Library of Humanities has joined the Portico Digital preservation archive, alongside the CLOCKSS Archive, adding to our guarantee of long-term availability of the material published in our journals. 

Portico is a community-supported preservation archive that safeguards access to e-journals, e-books, and digital collections. Portico's unique, trusted process ensures that the content we preserve will remain accessible and usable for researchers, scholars, and students in the future. As all of the OLH’s titles are openly accessible, if there is a trigger event our content will be made openly available to everyone.

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

If you like the work that the Open Library of Humanities is doing, please consider asking your institution to support us financially. We cannot operate without our library members. More details for libraries can be found here: https://www.openlibhums.org/plugins/supporters/signup/.
