Betreff: [OpenCon] Humanities Commons, the topic of a 2016 lightning talk, is now in public beta!

Dear Colleagues,

I am delighted to invite you to try out Humanities Commons<http://hcommons.org>, which launched in open beta last month, just a couple of weeks after OpenCon. Humanities Commons is a nonprofit network where humanities scholars can create a professional profile, discuss common interests, develop new publications, and share their work in a social, open-access repository. The Humanities Commons network is open to anyone.

As a reminder, Humanities Commons was designed by scholarly societies in the humanities to serve the needs of humanists as they engage in teaching and research that benefit the larger community. Unlike other social and academic communities, Humanities Commons is open-access, open-source, and nonprofit. It is focused on providing a space to discuss, share, and store cutting-edge research and innovative pedagogy—not on generating profits from users' intellectual and personal data.

The network also features an open-access repository, the Commons Open Repository Exchange. CORE<https://hcommons.org/core> allows users to preserve their research and increase its reach by sharing it across disciplinary, institutional, and geographic boundaries. Humanities Commons members can deposit all kinds of scholarly materials in CORE: peer-reviewed journal articles, dissertations and theses; works in progress; conference papers; syllabi; abstracts; data sets; presentations; translations; book reviews; maps; charts; and more. Developed in partnership with Columbia University's Center for Digital Research and Scholarship, CORE provides robust preservation services and is underwritten by an implementation grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities' Office of Digital Humanities.

Humanities Commons is a project of the office of scholarly communication at the Modern Language Association. Its development was generously funded by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Humanities Commons is based on the open-source Commons-in-a-Box project of the City University of New York and the CUNY Graduate Center and is an expansion of the MLA's MLA Commons, which launched in January 2013. The founding partner societies of Humanities Commons are the Association for Jewish Studies; the Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies; and the College Art Association. Each society has its own Commons hub.

We look forward to seeing what you make of the platform! You can contact me with any questions, or the entire Humanities Commons team at the Modern Language Association at hello[AT]hcommons.org.


OpenCon is empowering the next generation to advance Open Access, Open Data and Open Education. This group is for participants of the conference and community, either in person, at satellite events or through the webcasts, videos (etc) to interact, share updates, ideas and discuss relevant topics. So please, join in the discussion! We would love to hear about projects you're working on, questions you've got, news and events.
