"Open scholarship" is essentially scholarship that is based on the principle of making research and scholarly work accessible to all. Conversations about open the "open humanities" often intersect with those about the digital humanities (the intersection of digital technologies and the humanities) and the public humanities (which seeks to reach the general public and to connect current civic life with the humanities). Though each of these terms has a somewhat different focus, each of them shares the principle of sharing knowledge and scholarship and making it more accessible to all, often or usually through the use of digital tools and infrastructure.
