Open Library of Humanities has just landed a grant for $741,000…

“Birkbeck, University of London has been awarded a three-year grant of $741,000 from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to cement and expand a new model for open-access publishing in the humanities disciplines.”

This is to be centred on making a peer-reviewed open access…

“mega-journal, multi-journal and books platform for the humanities”, “with no author-facing charges”.

No full-text search and access at the OLH, as yet. But it looks like many major university libraries are signing up in principle.
