    Abstract

    This article sets out the economic problems faced by the humanities disciplines in the transition to gold open access and outline the bases for investigations of collective funding models. Beginning with a series of four problems, it then details the key players in this field and their various approaches to collective ?procurement? mechanisms. Finally, I narrate the approach that we are taking with the Open Library of Humanities to investigate such measures.
