Today the University of Bath launches the Institute for Policy Research. We hope the new Institute's research will be made open access. There are a lot of new publishing models engaging with the discipline specific challenges of open access for humanities and social sciences. Here are a few that have caught my eye recently:
OAPEN - a quality controlled collection of open access academic books in humanites and social sciences.
Open Library of Humanities (OLH) - an aspiring non-profit, peer reviewed open access mega journal for the humanities.
