        Subject: Open Access Business Models

 Dear Fellow Humanists,

The Programming Historian (programminghistorian.org) has been experimenting
with new business models to support open access scholarly publishing in
digital humanities. To that end, we have enabled a crowdfunding page 
(https://www.patreon.com/theprogramminghistorian) which we're pleased to
report that thanks to the generosity of members of the wider community, has
been able to help cover many of the core costs of publication by drawing on
principles of 18th century publishing and patronage. We'd of course welcome
more support for our multilingual publications, but are writing today to
make you aware of our experiments with sustainable business models. We'd
welcome hearing about other models in use throughout the open access sector
so that we can build a robust future of scholarly publishing together.
