    Abstract

    It can be easy to forget, as a digital humanities scholar, that most humanists are only just acclimatising to the implications of digital publication and that the idea that scholarship should be openly available still causes noticeable distress. This chapter addresses the histories, politics, and developments around open scholarship in the humanities disciplines. It covers basic terminological definitions, political and funding environments, the contentions and arguments in these spaces, the differing media forms of the (digital) humanities, licensing and re-use, and the potential future routes that open access could take.
