The Public Domain Review is an online magazine showcasing works which have entered the public domain, co-founded by Jonathan Gray and Adam Green.[1] It was launched on January 1, 2011 to coincide with Public Domain Day.[2] It is a project of the Open Knowledge Foundation.

The project aims to raise awareness of the public domain by promoting public domain works from across the web, including from Europeana, the Internet Archive, and Wikimedia Commons. As well as curated collections of public domain images, texts, and films, it features articles from contemporary writers, scholars, and public intellectuals,.[3]

Material from The Public Domain Review has been featured on the websites of Bloomberg,[4] The Huffington Post,[5] The Paris Review,[6] and The New York Times.[7] It regularly contributes collections to The New Inquiry.[8]
