Dear H-Net subscribers and readers,
H-Net is uniquely poised in the online academic world in a way that other sites and outlets simply can't match. It isn't just H-Net's new publishing platform that makes that the case. In the past two years 280 new editors have joined H-Net. That's 280 scholars, researchers,
and teachers who have seen the potential of the H-Net Commons, gotten involved to help develop it, and are providing service to their fields by building resources and developing meaningful content with and for their peers.
Among H-Net's 549 editors, these 280 represent an infusion of new energy and ideas working for the 200,000 subscriptions to H-Net’s 186
networks. All of them see the value in creating resources, moderating discussion, and open access online publishing in a non-profit run by fellow scholars, not at for profit publishers or social networking sites. H-Net editors make a unique contribution to their fields that no one else is in a position to do. They archive materials in organized and easily searchable ways. They publish original material on H-Net, not just re-post pubs from others places. They bring the latest information and updates to an enormous audience of their colleagues.
Thanks to their service, H-Net does what no one else can.
