Katherine Parker-Hay, an Editorial Officer for the Open Library of Humanities (OLH),"discusses the unique culture of OLH and some of the associated advantages of collaborating with us to publish a Special Collection":

"Special Collections are collections of articles published within the Open Library of Humanities journal (OLHJ) that are dedicated to focussed research topics in the humanities...The phrase ‘mega-journal’ still sits uncomfortably with me; as a researcher in the humanities, during the course of my doctorate I had been thoroughly ensconced in a culture of academic specialisation and disciplinary silos. However, spending time with our collections, I have come to question this culture and have seen first-hand some of the benefits of publishing with a truly interdisciplinary journal and open access platform."
