Open Access & the Humanities

518 views

Published on

A presentation that makes the argument that despite the fact the humanities journals' prices have not spiraled out of control, the humanities still needs to embrace open access. The first reason is that it encourages global scholarship. The second is that it showcases the value of humanities research to a skeptical public. Finally the presentation focuses on image copyright and how these expenses have hindered open access in art history specifically.
