About the open access Sustainable History Monograph Pilot

ScienceOpen has partnered with Longleaf Services to provide metadata and promotional services for its Mellon-funded initiative, the Sustainable History Monograph Pilot (SHMP).

The Sustainable History Monograph Pilot is an open access pilot aiming to push academic book publishing to the open model. Longleaf Services works with university presses to publish open digital editions of high-quality books in the field of history. ScienceOpen has indexed the publications from this initiative in the Sustainable History Monograph Pilot featured collection to help spread awareness of the SHMP. To read more about the open access SHMP initiative, go here.

Placing the SHMP Collection in context

By joining the platform, the works of the SHMP are now in the context of over 72 million scholarly records, 4.5 million of which are book records. The works of the SHMP will be discoverable by ScienceOpen’s advanced search engine and will receive promotion through ScienceOpen’s social media platforms as a featured Collection. Moreover, ScienceOpen’s Collections infrastructure clearly presents the Sustainable History Monograph Pilot, with branding and collection details explaining the role of Longleaf Services. Go to the SHMP Collection to browse through the currently available 33 OA titles or explore some highlighted titles below!

It is vital that OA monographs be highly discoverable and accessible in order for them to be widely read, used, and cited. This partnership with ScienceOpen will significantly expand the impact of the books in our program and the reach of the 21 participating presses.
