Open access refers to the removal of price and permission barriers to research and the phenomenon now has global traction. Of clear benefit to multiple stakeholders, harnessing the power of the web to disseminate research material at no cost to the reader seems uncomplicated. However, the challenges for its implementation in the humanities disciplines remain to be met and many researchers are concerned. In this talk, Dr. Martin Paul Eve will address the contexts, controversies and the future of open access for the humanities.
