Open Library of Humanities Journal Special Collection: Call for Articles

Scholarly Communications and Higher Education

The meta-reflexive study of scholarly communications and higher education in the digital age has long been of vital importance. This special collection gathers articles at the OLH journal on this topic.

The special collection welcomes both empirical and theoretical contributions in any mode of inquiry, from qualitative through to quantitative research. Areas for exploration include, but are not limited to: open-access publishing, evaluation and assessment, corporate involvement in academia, metrification, HE policy, and research funding systems. After initial screening, articles will undergo double-blind peer review.

Research articles should be approximately 8000 words in length, including references and a short bibliography. Submissions should include:

Abstract (250 words)

Full-length article (8000 words)

Author information (short biographical statement of 200 words)

The deadline for submissions is indefinite and the collection will remain open to work in this field on an ongoing basis.

The special collection, edited by Professor Martin Paul Eve, is to be published in the Open Library of Humanities (OLH) (ISSN 2056-6700). The OLH is an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation-funded open-access journal with a strong emphasis on quality peer review and a prestigious academic steering board. Unlike some open-access publications, the OLH has no author-facing charges and is instead financially supported by an international consortium of libraries.

Submissions should be made online at https://olh.openlibhums.org/about/submissions/ in accordance with the author guidelines and clearly marking the entry as [Scholarly Communications and Higher Education SPECIAL COLLECTION]. Submissions will then undergo a double-blind peer-review process. Authors will be notified of the outcome as soon as reports are received.
