Anmerkungen zur Politik des Open Access, neuen Redaktionsaufgaben und Finanzierungsfragen

Over the past two decades, a number of original ejournals have been established in the field of art history that are freely accessible worldwide (open access). Increasingly, established printed journals are also being retro-digitised and editors are considering a transition to digital publishing in open access (Journal Flipping). This article briefly presents some of the early examples from the field of art history and discusses the science policy framework for digital journals in open access. Based on her own experience as an editor of two online journals, the author discusses the expansion of the range of tasks facing the editorial staff when opting for publishing on an open access online platform. Finally, the author discusses various models for the hitherto problematic financing of open access journals in the humanities.
