The following is a model open-access policy in the Harvard style — with a freely waivable
rights-retaining license and a deposit requirement. This language is based on and
informed by the policies voted by several Harvard faculties, as well as MIT, Stanford University
School of Education, Duke University, and others. I have added some annotations
explaining why the wording is chosen as it is.
Further information explaining the motivation for and implementation of the Harvard
open-access policies is available at the web site of Harvard’s Office for Scholarly Communication
(http://osc.hul.harvard.edu/). Inquiries about the policy and this
model language can be made to email@example.com.
This document will be updated over time as further refinements are made to the policy.

Publishing humanities monographs in Open Access
OAPEN is a project in Open Access publishing for humanities and social sciences monographs. The consortium of University-based academic publishers who make up OAPEN believe that the time is ripe to bring the successes of scientific Open Access publishing to the humanities and social sciences.
The OAPEN partners are all active in the Open Access movement already, with details available on their pages on this site and on their own websites.
The project will find useful, exciting and beneficial ways of publishing scholarly work in Open Access, enhancing access to important peer reviewed research from across Europe. Most importantly it will find a financial model which is appropriate to scholarly humanities monographs, a publishing platform which is beneficial to all users and create a network of publishing partners across Europe and the rest of the world.

The Economics of Open Access Publishing
Open Access Publishing is the free distribution of research, whether it is as a pre-print (working paper) or a peer-reviewed article. Since the creation of the web, more and more journal are choosing open access as their business model. One of them was recently Economic Analysis and Policy, published by the Economic Society of Australia (Queensland). To celebrate this, EAP has just published a special issue dedicated to the Economics of Open Access Publishing. Articles are written by economists discussing their experience with open access as well as by others involved in open access publishing. They cover the transition the publishing industry is currently undergoing, the surprisingly low cost of publishing an open access journal, the impact of open access and various open source aspects of the open access.

The German-North American Resources Partnership (GNARP) is one of the working projects of the Global Resources Network. Originally known as the German Demonstration Project, it was renamed German Resources Project in 1998 to reflect its establishment as a long-term project focusing on improving the effective acquisition, sharing, and use of German-language materials among North American libraries and also the fostering of closer collaboration with German research libraries. In 2002 it adopted its current name to emphasize the goal of transatlantic collaboration. Currently there are 46 member libraries in North America and 5 in Germany. ·
An international consortium of about 700 academic institutions and research organizations, ICPSR provides leadership and training in data access, curation, and methods of analysis for the social science research community.
