Another society journal converts to OA and includes its 160-year backfile

The entire run of the Journal of the Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1847-2007 is now digital and OA in the institutional repository of Trinity College Dublin.  The journal is still alive and kicking, and new issues will also be OA through the IR.  Hence, this is not just a digitization project but also a journal conversion.  (Thanks to the Trinity College Digital Services' Librarian blog.)

For more details, Trinity College recorded yesterday's symposium celebrating the completion of the project and has now made it available in a two-part podcast (one and two).

PS:  Kudos to project manager Niamh Brennan and all the back-up provided by the Trinity College library, and kudos to the Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland for its consent and cooperation.
