    Abstract:
    This chapter explores open access dissertations, beginning with contextualizing openness in the humanities and discussing the histories of open source, open access and Creative Commons. The next section will offer guidance for humanities PhD candidates, their committees and institutions. Stakeholders should consider the multiple levels of open access that can be beneficial for dissertations, and they may wish to adopt additional methodologies from open-source software projects. Finally, I will offer my own dissertation as a case study in the interest of sharing data, beginning with an examination of the open access repository where my dissertation was deposited (CUNY Academic Works), and delving into analytics around my dissertation in the interest of data sharing. This chapter engages the ways that increased openness in the humanities can facilitate innovation in the field, and what the benefits and challenges may be from starting a public-facing research career at that vital moment as a scholar: the dissertation defense and deposit.
