    Leiden / Boston / Paderborn / Singapore / Beijing – 25 May 2018

    Expanding their Open Access publishing program, Brill Publishers has launched a new Open Access journal: Bridging Humanities – Platform for Alternatives Methodologies.

    Bridging Humanities is a peer reviewed, interdisciplinary and multi-area online publication. The scope of Bridging Humanities is to publish original projects that include visuals and other kinds of digital sources as an integral part of the publication. Bridging Humanities includes original research from the Humanities intended as an open field that is connected with other disciplines.

    Each publication is an interactive online space in which text and visuals are used as sources to produce and present knowledge from their field. Using this new format, Bridging Humanities encourages researchers to experiment with new methodologies for publication in which the importance of the digital is recognized as an integral part of the publication and research process.

    Launch event: 7 June 2018
    Bridging Humanities will be launched during a special meeting at Impact Hub, located at the:

    Royal Tropical Institute
    (Koninklijk Instituut voor de Tropen – KIT)
    Amsterdam, The Netherlands
    on 7 June 2018 (18.30 – 22.15 hrs).
