CEU Press are pleased to announce that Johns Hopkins University has renewed their membership subscription to their Opening the Future programme.

The library at Johns Hopkins University has boosted their local collection by subscribing to the History Package, Political Science Package, and East Meets West Package

This means that staff and students now have unlimited and concurrent access to 150 different eBooks on subjects including Central and Eastern Europe, focussing on its history from medieval times to the fall of communism, and various socio-political, economic, and cultural changes; both past and present, and on the on-going Russia-Ukraine war and its historical, political and cultural context. 

As with all Opening the Future members, Johns Hopkins University has enhanced their eBook collection with titles relevant to the university’s research and teaching needs - and at the same time their membership fees are funding new frontlist titles in OA format so that everyone, including their users, will benefit from the global open collection it contributes to. 

Through the generous support of member libraries like Johns Hopkins University all over the world, CEU Press has already been able to publish several new OA books (with more funded and planned) which are freely available for download from Project MUSE, OAPEN, JSTOR and other open platforms. You can read about, and access, all the OA books on the progress page:
