The Open Humanities Press (OHP) is a scholar-led publishing initiative founded by Paul Ashton (Australia), Gary Hall (UK), Sigi Jöttkandt (Australia) and David Ottina (US). Its aim is to raise awareness of open access publishing in the humanities and to provide promotional and technical support to open access journals that have been invited by OHP's editorial oversight group to join the collective.

OHP launched in May 2008 with seven open access journals and was named a "beacon of hope" by the Public Library of Science.[1] In August, 2009 OHP announced it will begin publishing open access book series edited by senior members of OHP's board.
