"This article aims to provoke new discussions on open access in the humanities by offering a thought experiment. Based on an earlier article by Peter Suber, Promoting Open Access in the Humanities, in which nine points are identified and discussed to explain why open access is moving slowly in the humanities, this paper asks instead: Why should open access be moving quickly in the humanities? To answer this question, the author attempts to invert each of Suber’s original points to identify a counter argument. The article concludes that change is occurring more quickly than one would suspect."
