  - - - The Journal - OJH's Publishing Ethics

Journal scope and full Open Access distribution  

Open Journal of Humanities (OJH), ISSN 2612-6966, is a peer-reviewed Electronic Scientific Journal, which is devoted to the field of Humanities. All the volumes of the Journal are available in full Gold Open Access (see below). OJH is published three times a year, and is distributed online with a full Gold Open Access policy, without any embargo period, through a Creative Commons License (CC-by 4.0), according to scientific best practices. In Italy, OJH is officially classified by ANVUR as "scientific journal" for Area 10 "Scienze dell'antichità, filologico-letterarie e storico-artistiche"; Area 11 "Scienze storiche, filosofiche, pedagogiche, psicologiche" and Area 12 "Scienze giuridiche".

The Journal is available in full Open Acces at the following DOAJ address: https://www.doaj.org/toc/2612-6966 

Peer-review process, publication ethics, malpractice statements and Authors' responsability  

Peer-reviewing process for OJH is operated on a "double blind" basis, for each proposed article; it is conducted by at least two external referees, and is monitored by members of OJH's Scientific Committee and by the Publisher's Editor. Both the reviewers and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process. Received articles are made anonymous by our Editors, before Peer-reviewing process begins. Selection is based only on intellectual and scientific value and content, with no regards to authors' identity, origins, political or religious orientations. Proposed papers must be unpublished and fully original, and OJH Editorial Board will condemn and report any plagiarism or semi-plagiarism case. Every single Author accepts his own full responsability for the originality and paternity of the published text.  

Article processing charges (APC) and opportunities for young scholars  

Not being expression of an University Department, but rather a fully independent Journal, and as a consequence of its full Gold Open Access and non-profit policy and distribution, OJH is published thanks to single article processing charges (APC). All details on requested APC amount are below, at "Current Call for Papers" section. We also consider, for each single issue, a limited number or completely or partially charge-free articles, such as single "invited articles" by distinguished Scholars, and a limited number of single articles proposed by young PhD Students, Post-Doc Scholars and independent Researchers who have no access to University grants, according to a prior quality evaluation by OJH's Scientific Committee.

Accepted Topics 

Accepted topics of OJH include the whole field of Humanities, and namely: Archaeology, Arts (Visual Arts, Architecture), Classics, Philology, Philosophy, Law and Politics, Linguistics, Literature, Psychology, Music and Theatre. Corrispondent scientific classification in Italy covers the following four fields (cf. D.M. 855/2015 and ANVUR): Area 10 "Scienze dell'antichità, filologico-letterarie e storico-artistiche"; Area 11 "Scienze storiche, filosofiche, pedagogiche, psicologiche"; Area 12 "Scienze giuridiche".  

Open Access distribution, Creative Commons copyright, and DOI - Databases currently indexing OJH 

Every single paper is published with its own DOI and stable link. Both published Volumes and single papers are available online for free for reading and for download, and after different evaluation periods they will be fully indexed on major Open Access Scientific Databases, such as HAL, OSF, ROAD-ISSN, Scopus, WOS, DOAJ and on major Broad and General Databases as well, such as Google Books, and Internet Archive.
