On 17 October Tijdschrift voor tijdschriftstudies and Utrecht University Library organise a symposium which will explore possible solutions for scholarly journals that are contemplating or planning a transition to Open Access, and for journals that are currently trying to survive in Open Access.

Up to this moment, there is no satisfying business model for Open Access journals within the Humanities. Yet there is no turning back, especially now the call for Open Access is strongly supported by politicians and funders. Is it possible to keep existing journals afloat in an Open Access world? Or do we need to make more radical choices by reforming publication culture and journal formats in the Humanities? Experts from the international field of Open Access publishing for Humanities will share their views and experiences. Furthermore, several journal editors who made the transition to OA will talk about their new business models and the challenges they are facing.
