In the spirit of International Open Access Week, an annual scholarly communications event celebrated around the world starting October 21st, Project MUSE is embracing the global theme of ‘Open for Whom? Equity in Open Knowledge.’ Project MUSE provides digital humanities and social science content for the scholarly community around the world.
In collaboration with many of its publishing partners from around the world, Project MUSE has curated a bibliography of fully open access articles and books from its platform, relevant to this year’s OA Week theme.
In addition to the bibliography, MUSE invites readers to its OA Week celebration page, highlighting recently released OA content, OA initiatives in which MUSE participates, and some thoughts on OA from a few of the renowned academic publishers with whom they partner. Featured are the first 100 books from the Johns Hopkins University Press' Hopkins Open Publishing: Encore Editions, and MUSE’s longest-running fully OA journal title, RSF: The Russell Sage Foundation Journal of the Social Sciences.
Project MUSE launched MUSE Open in 2018 with a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the National Endowment of the Humanities, an initiative designed to ensure that open access monographs were broadly shared, highly discoverable and richly linked. Along with over 1200 OA books, MUSE now hosts several open access journals, and the platform has long supported its participating publishers in offering OA options for individual articles or issues from their subscription journals.
Open Access Week, a global event now entering its tenth year, is an opportunity for the academic and research community to continue to learn about the potential benefits of Open Access, to share what they have learned with colleagues, and to help inspire wider participation in helping to make Open Access a new norm in scholarship and research.
