Open Access Project MUSE

In the spirit of International Open Access Week  October 21-27, 2019, Project MUSE embraces the theme of “Open for Whom? Equity in Open Knowledge.” In collaboration with our participating publishers, we have curated a bibliography of fully OA books and journals articles related to this theme. We’re also highlighting some of our other recently released OA content, some of the OA initiatives in which we proudly participate, and some thoughts on OA from a few of the renowned academic publishers with whom we partner.

With the successful launch of MUSE Open in 2018, an initiative designed to ensure that open access monographs were broadly shared, highly discoverable and richly linked, our mission to support OA publishing goes on. We are committed to developing OA content well into the future and in that same spirit, in the here and now, this week, join with us! Discover. Explore. MUSE.

UNC Press and its affiliate Longleaf Services have been pleased to work with Project MUSE on the Sustainable History Monograph Pilot. This Mellon-funded initiative brings together twenty-three university presses to participate in digital-first open access publication model for high-quality monographs in the discipline of history. We see MUSE as a vital partner in helping our presses’ titles maximize their discoverability, usage, and impact.
