The Open Library of Humanities (OLH) is a consortium of open-access peer-reviewed journals. This nonprofit publishing platform is based in the UK and had its official launch in 2015. Rather than operating on an article-processing charge model like many open-access academic journals, the OLH is instead funded through a model of Library Partnership Subsidies, which the OLH argues is a more cost-effective approach particularly for research in the humanities. Their extensive academic advisory board includes David Armitage (Harvard), Kathleen Fitzpatrick (MLA), and Peter Suber (Harvard OA Project), among many others. At this time, the OLH publishes, supports, or preserves 23 journals across a range of humanities and social science disciplines. Some examples are The International Journal of Welsh Writing in English, Orbit: A Journal of American Literature, and Architectural Histories, as well as Open Library of Humanities: the OLH's own multidisciplinary journal. This platform and collection of journals will be of interest to librarians and scholars in many disciplines.
