DeGruyter news:  Göttingen and De Gruyter in open access book transformation project for the Humanities (October 30, 2019)

"De Gruyter and a consortium led by the Göttingen State and University Library (SUB Göttingen) have launched a project to transform Humanities titles into open access books by providing consortial financing for selected De Gruyter frontlist titles.

Instead of acquiring print copies or licensing access to eBooks, the libraries participating in the project finance open access monographs and book series. If the minimum number of partners is reached, the project will lead to more than 50 new open access titles in 2020."
