open access humanities scholarship

This is great news. The Open Humanities Press (OHP) aims to be for the humanities what many similar archives and endeavors have been for the sciences.

It will begin including the following journals: Cosmos and History, Culture Machine, Fibreculture, Film-Philosophy, International Journal of Zizek Studies, Parrhesia and Vectors.

Elsevier’s environmentally-unfriendly licenses

Why does Elsevier hate the environment and all the trees and all the little children who will be living in a world 50 years from now harmed by Elsevier’s really stupid insistence that its electronic documents be PRINTED and then SCANNED IN before being sent out for ILL ????

Seriously, faculty should really reconsider submitting to Elsevier journals. What a waste of human effort as well as trees.

Open Access News has the rest of the scoop. Although this isn’t new news, it seems like an opportune moment to bring it to people’s attention.
