Open Access guidelines for the arts and humanities: recommendations by DARIAH

In the recent months, European policymakers and funding bodies made a bold move to set full and and immediate Open Access to scholarly publications the default. Open Access became a critical global issue and thus researchers need to be well-informed about its benefits, pitfalls, but most importantly, about their options to openly disseminate their own research results. In our Open Access guidelines, we propose recommendations to improve Open Access to publications in the arts and humanities. Our core aim is to bring closer the harmonized but transforming European Open Access policy landscape to the communities around DARIAH and recommend very practical steps to achieve compliance with it.
