    Call for Special Collections!

    Posted by Paula Clemente Vega on 2022-05-23

The Open Library of Humanities journal (OLHJ) is currently seeking new Special Collections to join our wide array of published research in the Humanities.  

OLHJ has published quality, peer-reviewed research across 40 Special Collections since 2016, with subjects ranging from ‘The Working-Class Avant-Garde’, to ‘Representing Classical Music in the Twenty-First Century’, and more recently ‘The Politics and History of Menstruation: Contextualising the Scottish campaign to End Period Poverty’

There are many benefits of publishing a Special Collection with OLHJ, including:

  • A home for exciting, innovative collections of Humanities-based articles, including cross- and inter-disciplinary research; 

  • Articles for Special Collections are published on a ‘rolling basis’—as soon as they are ready—which can spread out the editorial workload and reduce the delays in making research publicly available; 

  • All articles in OLHJ Special Collections are rigorously double-blind peer-reviewed and undergo a thorough in-house copyedit by a member of the OLH editorial team; 

  •  Special Collections published by OLHJ support a sustainable open access model of publishing, through the Open Library of Humanities’ Library-Partnership Subsidy Model. 

  •  Articles published as open access with OLHJ contribute to freely-available, quality scholarly research with no reader or author-facing fees. 

If you are interested in proposing a Special Collection, please visit our Special Collections page for more information. We look forward to seeing your proposals!

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
