Open Humanities Press

Peer review procedure

All OHP publications are fully and rigorously peer reviewed. Journals affiliated with OHP are evaluated by OHP’s editorial oversight group for scholarly excellence, editorial calibre and relevance to OHP’s intellectual mission. Each OHP book series has independent review processes. Proposals for new book series are approved by members of OHP’s Editorial Board.


A diversity of critical approaches and voices is central to OHP’s mission to foster leading research in the humanities. OHP aims to be internationally diverse in its content, editorial process and, as an open access publisher, makes its scholarly literature freely available to anyone with an internet connection around the world.


We are committed to transparency. Our editorial policies are clear and publicly available. We welcome enquiries about our journal selection process and various book series.
