We are proud to announce the publication of the latest issue of TSEG / The Low Countries Journal of Social and Economic History, who have joined the incubator program this year.
TSEG/ The Low Countries Journal of Social and Economic History is the Dutch-Flemish journal of social and economic history. It is an open access, peer-reviewed, scientific journal which was granted A status/ INT 1 by the European Science Foundation. The journal has a strong interest in the manner in which people in the past have interacted with each other and given shape to social, economic, cultural and political patterns. Key notions here are economic growth, power & (in)equality, group cultures, networks, identity, gender, ethnicity, ecology, trade & technique, entrepreneurship, labour & social movements.
The International Journal of the Commons is part of the KU Select 2017 Collection which was officially launched on 16th May 2017.
Knowledge Unlatched (KU) connects a global library community of over 450 institutions that crowdfunds the costs to publishing HSS books and journals in Open Access. In KU Select 2017 not only books but also 21 journals participate from a variety of publishers. The journals are a mix of formerly closed and Open Access titles. They have been curated by a Selection Committee consisting of 40 librarians from 12 countries.
“We’re proud to be taking KU to the next level. By including journals in this round for the first time, we are moving KU into another domain, thus making the initiative a truly open access movement across the whole range of content,” says Sven Fund, Managing Director of Knowledge Unlatched.

The International Journal of the Commons is an interdisciplinary peer-reviewed open access journal, dedicated to furthering the understanding of institutions for use and management of resources that are (or could be) enjoyed collectively. These resources may be part of the natural world (e.g. forests, climate systems, or the oceans) or they may be created (e.g. infrastructures such as irrigation systems, the internet or (scientific) knowledge, for example of the sort that is published in open access journals).
IJC is a partner of the Elinor Ostrom Award on Collective Governance of the Commons.
IJC is an initiative of the International Association for the Study of the Commons (IASC) and supported by Utrecht University Library Open Access Journals.
