Against the Grain V36#1

Living on the water you see and hear all sorts of birds.  It is amazing how birds adapt to their environments!  There are so many bird sounds and sight apps.  One of my favorites is the Merlin Bird ID app from the Cornell Ornithology Lab.  Did you participate in the Great Backyard Bird Count

This issue is chock-full of great information about enabling open access in the humanities.  Guest edited by Anthony Watkinson (Principal Consultant, CIBER Research and Conference Director for the Charleston Conference), these articles are based on the panel of presentations he convened at the 2023 Fiesole Retreat at the University of Basel, Switzerland.  It includes the funder perspective, from Niels Stern (Managing Director, OAPEN Foundation), and the small-to-mid sized publisher perspective from Emily Poznaski (Director, Central European University Press).  Charles Watkinson (Associate University Librarian, Publishing, University of Michigan Library) shows us why we should look beyond the assumption that HSS publishers are lagging when it comes to OA, and Ros Pyne (Global Director, Research and Open Access, Bloomsbury) discusses moving beyond the BPC model at a larger press.  And finally, we see a view for collection action towards OA through a consortia group from Kate McCready (Visiting Program Officer for Academy Owned Scholarly Publishing, Big Ten Academic Alliance;  Librarian, University of Minnesota).

We have a special report, the third installment of a report on Librarian Futures from Matthew Weldon (Library Patron Consultant, Technology from Sage).  The report focuses on the library skills landscape and includes commentary from authors, librarians, and more.

This issue also includes an ATG interview with Becky Lenzini and George Machovec about The Charleston Advisor — a look back over 25 years and a look forward to new plans for this important industry publication.  Matthew Ismail also provides a fascinating conversation with Zack Ellis of TheirStory taken from an episode of ATG the Podcast.

Okay, let’s get into it! And don’t forget to take some time to listen to the birds today, if you can.  It’s good for you! 

Love, Yr.Ed.
