DARIAH-EU is launching an annual Open Access Book Bursary for the publication of one’s first monograph within the domain of Digital Humanities. The bursary will fund the Open Access publication of one monograph (or other long form of scholarship) per year.
By doing so, DARIAH-EU aims to further strengthen its long-standing commitment to pave pathways to the open research culture as it specifically pertains to arts and humanities disciplines and to enable early career researchers, who are usually less privileged in institutional Open Access grants, to openly disseminate their first monographs in book series that are topically most relevant for their field of interest.
In terms of publishing venues, the bursary aims to support community-driven, fair players and therefore publication in a DOAB certified, fair Open Access publication venue with transparent pricing and in alignment with the SPARC Good Practice Principles with Scholarly Communication Services is set as an absolute eligibility criterion.
* We use the term ‘monograph’ in a sense that it includes all long forms of scholarship.
