If you are in the UK, and you have authors who want to know more about Open Access publishing, SPARC Europe has organised a roadshow for humanities scholars. See the programme here.
A series of events will take place across the UK during the autumn of 2014 to provide an opportunity for researchers to learn about new publishing channels in the humanities.
All researchers working in arts and humanities fields are invited to come along and meet their publisher colleagues in an informal tell-and-show session. You will be able to see what their publishing programmes cover and learn about the experiences of authors who have published in Open Access outlets.

A week ago, over 80 organisations from around the world, including many publishers, signed up to a letter to STM, the International Association of Scientific, Medical and Technical Publishers, calling on it to withdraw its new set of model licences for academic content.
SPARC Europe was one of the first signatories.
The following briefing document to SPARC Europe Members explains a little more about the topic and why we signed the letter to STM.
