Browse the entire eCollection: Open Access Perspectives in the Humanities and Social Sciences

October 25, 2013 1111

Yesterday, SAGE co-hosted the event “Open Access Futures in the Humanities and Social Sciences.” The aim of the conference was to bring together a diverse range of voices within the wider community to examine and interrogate issues of openness, new horizons for adopting open access practices, and how best to achieve a beneficial transition to a more open future for humanities and social science research.

In conjunction with the Open Access Futures event, the Impact blog put together its first eCollection –Open Access Perspectives in the Humanities and Social Sciences. The collection delves deeper into many of the issues discussed at the event, as well as provides additional space for topics we may not have been able to suitably cover during the event. The panel sessions were video recorded and are available to watch here. In the coming week, we will look to compile further material from the event.
