Scholarly Communication

Open Library of Humanities' Library Partnership Subsidy Model

The Open Library of Humanities (OLH) is a charitable organisation dedicated to publishing open access scholarship with no author-facing article processing charges (APCs). It is funded by an international consortium of libraries who have come together to make scholarly publishing fairer, more accessible, and rigorously preserved for the digital future.

To support NUS and international authors in the humanities in publishing open access, NUS Libraries has signed up as a member of OLH since September 2020. The OLH currently hosts 22 fully open access journals showcasing research from a number of Humanities disciplines including Classics, Modern Languages, Philosophy, History and Sociology. Everything published in the OLH and its journals is free for the reader to access. All material is to be licensed under a Creative Commons license of the author's choosing.

Details on the OLH Model can be found here.
