Flip subscription journals to fee-free open access (poster)

"Following the success of our previous poster, the Comics Superheroes Poster, we are delighted to be able to launch our next poster of the journal flipping series, the Barbara Kruger Poster. This new poster is inspired in the artist's iconic feminist work Untitled (Your body is a battleground), created in 1989 for the Women's March in Washington D.C. in support of reproductive freedom and choice. Designed by the talented graphic designer Nicky Borowiec with permission from the artist, the poster celebrates the opening of our journal flipping programme which seeks to convert existing subscription titles to our open access model without fees thanks to the support of our higher-tier member libraries. We would like to express our gratitude to the artist, Barbara Kruger, for allowing us to build on her brilliant work to raise awareness of our journal flipping scheme and help unlock global access to humanities scholarship.
We would also like to send the Barbara Kruger Poster out into the world – and we warmly encourage you to download, share, print off, and put up this poster wherever you feel it might be appropriate. And don't forget to tag us on social media and use our #empowOA hashtag!..."
