Publishing and the Publicly Engaged Humanities


This working group brings together a wide range of participants from across humanities communities (publishers, scholars, librarians and more) to discuss model practices for publishing on public and publicly engaged humanities.

The activities of our working group are fairly informal. We have completed a couple of projects and produced a number of resources that you can find linked via posts on this site.

Highlights of our work to date include:

  • A working paper setting out the challenges and model practices of publicly engaged publishing in the humanities
  • An open educational resource setting out how a values-based approach to scholarly communication can address the challenges of publishing publicly engaged scholarship

While our primary focus is on humanities and social sciences, we welcome all engaged scholars!

How can you get involved?
