The Journal Of British and Irish Innovative Poetry, a formerly subscription-access journal in publication since 2009, has become the first of its kind to adopt the Open Library of the Humanities open access model. According to journal editors Scott Thurston, Gareth Farmer, and Vicky Sparrow:
This move to a fully open-access platform with the OLH is a game-changing moment for the journal in its sixth year of operations… That our new form is open-access (and free of author-charges) sits particularly well with the ethos of a Journal so concerned with liberated and liberating writing, and we hope the move will open our work up to a wider community of thinkers. We are all thrilled about the potential for this new phase of operations and keen to experiment!
Open Library of the Humanities founder Dr. Martin Paul Eve reports that a range of new journals are on the horizon for OLH as well.
