Open Access discussion has dominated the STM field to date while in Arts and Humanities the scholarly approach to professional and intellectual practices has moved researchers away from Open Access ideas. In spite of this, Open Access is now a far full-grown movement and is suggesting new opportunities for scholars in Humanities. Author discusses such opportunities in relation to the Green and the Gold Road. Researchers in Humanities can profit from retaining copyright, from publishing most of their articles or monographs with university presses as Open Access resources, comparing themselves in an international arena. Open Access offers new distribution and publication channels to out-of-print works and to first books by young scholars in Humanities. New collaborative scholarly writing and innovative peer-review systems can also be experienced and developed. The case studies of Open Humanities Press, of the European project OAPEN and of the Italian publisher Polimetrica are examined in conclusion of the article. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
