Understanding the implication of open access publication in humanities and social sciences disciplines
firstname.lastname@example.org's bookmarks 2012-11-29
"Learned societies and subject associations representing humanities and social sciences disciplines remain extremely concerned about the impact of the new research council policies on open access publication that take effect from April next year.... The Academy will continue to advocate on behalf of the humanities and social sciences academic community and ensure their concerns about the impact of the open access policies are given proper consideration by policy makers. It will publish a series of commissioned essays on how academics, learned societies and university managers will deal with the new publishing environment. These essays will look at the impact in different disciplines and explore some of the potential risks involved in a rapid move to open access publication. The first set of essays will be published in spring 2013."
