The joy of open access
I was thrilled to see that as of November 2019 Computation and the Humanities has been downloaded some 116,205 times and counting! According to the information that I’ve received from the book’s publisher, Springer, the book was in the top 25% most downloaded of their texts of 2018. Also, its download rates were almost triple the discipline download average rates for 2018. It looks like the book is becoming a vital reference for scholars of cultural and computing history, digital humanities and cultural heritage alike. It also features in a number of university syllabi (Open Syllabus).
It is open access and freely available. Please grab yourself a copy of it if you have not already done so.
