Subject: Open Access Business Models Dear Fellow Humanists, The Programming Historian (programminghistorian.org) has been experimenting with new business models to support open access scholarly publishing in digital humanities. To that end, we have enabled a crowdfunding page (https://www.patreon.com/theprogramminghistorian) which we're pleased to report that thanks to the generosity of members of the wider community, has been able to help cover many of the core costs of publication by drawing on principles of 18th century publishing and patronage. We'd of course welcome more support for our multilingual publications, but are writing today to make you aware of our experiments with sustainable business models. We'd welcome hearing about other models in use throughout the open access sector so that we can build a robust future of scholarly publishing together. -- Adam Crymble Chair, ProgHist Ltd.
