Humanities Scholar Helps Create Change Offers Thoughts on Digital Scholarship

"What is the value – to the humanities and to society – of more open scholarly communication? Open access removes barriers. I find this very politically attractive. The sharing of knowledge it allows helps us get at economic inequities – experienced both by smaller academic institutions and, of course, by developing countries. Everybody wins. More access and resource sharing lead to a democratized diffusion of knowledge. "
