Humanities — Open Access Journal

Humanities (ISSN 2076-0787) is an international, scholarly, peer-reviewed, open access journal for scholarly papers of exceptionally high quality across all humanities disciplines. Humanities is published quarterly online by MDPI. 
  • Open Access - free for readers, with article processing charges (APC) partially funded by institutions through Knowledge Unlatched and partially funded by MDPI, resulting in no direct charge to authors.
  • High visibility: Indexed in ERIH Plus.
  • Rapid publication: manuscripts are peer-reviewed and a first decision provided to authors approximately 25 days after submission; acceptance to publication is undertaken in 7 days (median values for papers published in the first six months of 2018).
