Principles

Access

OHP is fully committed to Open Access as it was originally conceived by the founders of the Open Access movement: to maximize the free exchange of scholarly knowledge.

Scholarship

All OHP publications are fully and rigorously peer reviewed. Journals affiliated with OHP are evaluated by OHP's editorial oversight group for scholarly excellence, editorial calibre and relevance to OHP's intellectual scope.

Diversity

A diversity of critical approaches and voices is central to OHP's mission to foster leading research in the humanities. OHP aims to be internationally diverse in its content, editorial process and, as an open access publisher, makes its scholarly literature freely available to anyone with an internet connection around the world.

Transparency

We are committed to transparency. Our editorial policies are clear and publicly available. We welcome enquiries about our journal selection process.

Goals

A grassroots response to the crisis in scholarly publishing in the humanities, Open Humanities Press is an international open access publishing collective whose mission is to make leading works of contemporary critical thought freely available worldwide.
