Berghahn Open Access
Berghahn Books supports practical open access policies that help make scholarship available to a broader audience in a sustainable way.
In addition to offering gold open access options that uphold publication mandates instituted by our authors' funding partners, we also participate in initiatives, such as Knowledge Unlatched, which provide collective funding opportunities for selected titles.
Additional information regarding our open access policies can be found here, under the “Open Access” tab. If open access status is required for your publication, please contact your Berghahn editor.

Introducing the Berghahn Migration and Development Studies Collection
Berghahn Books is proud to be partnering with Knowledge Unlatched to present the Berghahn Migration and Development Studies collection. Every year until 2023 we will be adding 20 front-list titles to the collection, covering the topics of international migration and movement as well as the social implications of economic and environmental change for communities. As libraries and institutions sign up for the collection and pledge their financial support, KU is able to fund the ‘unlatching’ of these books, making them available as Open Access.
The collection includes titles from the Forced Migration series as well as the Integration and Conflict Studies and the Environmental Anthropology and Ethnobiology series, among others.

Berghahn Open Anthropology
In partnership with Libraria
Berghahn Open Anthro is a subscribe-to-open model being piloted by Berghahn Books in partnership with Libraria, a group of researchers who are also supporting a number of other publishers hoping to adopt this model should the pilot prove successful.
This model was developed in part through a 2019 ground-breaking collaborative meeting between publishers, libraries, funders, and OA experts that was held at MIT. BOA-S2O is in its third year and has added a new journal, Social Anthropology, in 2022.
Researchers can support the BOA-S2O initiative by contacting their libraries directly or filling out a recommendation form.
For more details, please read our Frequently Asked Questions.
The 2022 collection includes the following 14 journals:
Open Access Journals
Social Anthropology/Anthropologie sociale
Anthropological Journal of European Cultures
Anthropology of the Middle East
The Cambridge Journal of Anthropology
Conflict and Society
Environment and Society
Journal of Legal Anthropology
Learning and Teaching
Migration and Society
Religion and Society
