"Modern Languages Open (MLO) is a platform for the open access dissemination of peer-reviewed scholarship from across the modern languages to a global audience.

Current sections are: Chinese/Asian Languages; French & Francophone; German Studies; Hispanic Studies; Italian; Portuguese & Lusophone; Russian & Eastern European Studies.

Publishing under the imprimatur of a leading university press, MLO marries the editorial expertise and marketing capabilities of a publisher that has been active in the field for many decades with current digital technologies designed to facilitate open access to content under a CC-BY or CC-BY-NC licence. [...]

MLO articles are open access immediately upon publication (Gold), whereby an author publication fee (APC) is charged after acceptance. The normal publication fee of £500/$750 has been discounted to £250/$350 for each published article. Authors who do not have the means to cover the publication fee may request a waiver after acceptance and are encouraged to request more information."

"The Ebstorf Map (Wilke, 2001; Kugler, 2007; Wolf, 2004, 2006, 2007, 2009a, b), the largest medieval map of the world whose original has been lost, is not only a geographical map. In the Middle Ages, a map contained mystic, historical and religious motifs. Of central importance is Jesus Christ, who, in the Ebstorf Map, is part of the earth. The Ebstorf Map contains the knowledge of the time of its creation; it can be used for example as an atlas, as a chronicle of the world, or as an illustrated Bible."

Eric Hobsbawm and Christopher Hill had phones tapped, correspondence intercepted and friends and wives monitored.

"The Harvard Library is pleased to announce a new policy on the use of digital reproductions of works in the public domain. When the Library makes such reproductions and makes them openly available online, it will treat the reproductions themselves as objects in the public domain. It will not try to restrict what users can do with them, nor will it grant or deny permission for any use."

This is something which really ought to be a matter of course.
