Weekly roundup: December 13

  • The University of Lincoln Repository has made Martin Paul Eve’s 2014 book, Open Access and the Humanities: Contexts, Controversies and the Future (Cambridge University Press, Cambridge) available as a PDF: “If you work in a university, it is likely that you have heard the term “open access” in the past couple of years. You may also have heard either that it is the utopian answer to all the problems of research dissemination or perhaps that it marks the beginning of an apocalyptic new era of pay-to-say publishing. In this book, Dr. Martin Paul Eve sets out the histories, contexts and controversies for open access, specifically in the humanities. Broaching practical elements alongside economic histories, open licensing, monographs and funder policies, this book is a must-read for both those new to open access or scholarly communications and those with an already keen interest in the latest developments for the humanities.”
