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. The first four volumes of the Journal, from no. 1 (2019) to no. 4 (2020), have been published and are now 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.    
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 Proposed papers must be unpublished and fully original, and OJH Editorial Board will condemn and report any plagiarism or semi-plagiarism case.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)   

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).
