In April of 2016 Alexander Street will launch Anthropological Fieldwork Notes Online and the Anthropology Commons. This cross-searchable, integrated to an Open Access and for-fee database creates an unprecedented publishing solution for primary sources and archival materials in the field of anthropology.  This 200,000+ page collection is an ambitious effort to find, license and digitize the fieldwork notes, images and recordings that informed the writing of the seminal anthropologists of the 20th century: Malinowski, Benedict, Gluckman and more. 

Come to this session to learn about how we are innovating a new funding model for Open Access.
