Podcast on the Open Humanities Press

Sigi Jottkandt and Gary Hall spoke about the Open Humanities Press Monday at the University of California, Irvine.  A podcast of their talk is now online.

Update.  Sigi adds by email (quoted with permission):

OHP's Editorial Oversight Group has now approved its first 7 journals for inclusion in OHP. Once the re-design and migration to Open Journal Systems of one of the approved journals is complete, OHP is scheduled to launch later this month or early May.

(Incidentally, one of the interesting things we discovered from giving our series of talks was how little awareness of OA resources there is in humanities fields - Open Journal Systems in particular seemed to be a real revelation to a lot of people. It was good to be able to get the word out.)
