Description: In this talk, Dr. Martin Paul Eve, author of Open Access and the Humanities: Contexts, Controversies and the Future (Cambridge University Press, 2014), will set out the ways in which the digital environment is changing the dissemination of scholarship. Covering the social, economic and technological challenges to open dissemination of research work, the talk will also feature an explanation of the economic model behind the Open Library of Humanities, supported by the GALILEO consortium.
The Open Library of Humanities (OLH) is a gold open access, peer-reviewed, internationally-supported, academic-led, not-for-profit, mega-journal, multi-journal and books platform for the humanities.
The Georgia Knowledge Repository, an initiative of GALILEO, celebrated Open Access Week (October 20-26) with “From Pre-concept to Flourish: The KSU IR Experience,” a presentation about Kennesaw State University’s open access journal project by Dr. David Evans, Dr. Jesse Benjamin, and Aajay Murphy.
Description: By the simple addition of Institutional Repository Services, Kennesaw State University’s Sturgis Library offers our scholarly community a platform to showcase their intellectual endeavors and to publish this content via open access to the world. At the heart of the KSU IR experience is the BEPress Platform that the library has used to foster new relationships and partnerships. By creating open access journals we have extended partner-ships with academic departments, individual faculty, the KSU Research Foundation, undergraduate organizations, and various regional associations.
