Graduate School Aid to Publication Award 2021
The Graduate School Aid to Publication Award is a competitive funding scheme designed to assist SALC Postgraduate Researchers with the publication of academic books or articles. Awards of up to £300 each will be allocated this academic year (by 31 May 2021).
Monies may be used to support digitalization of documents to publication standard, publication fees for highly rated Open Access venues, or other publication costs.
To be eligible, researchers need to be currently registered on a PhD programme in the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures. Authors must show evidence that their work is under contract with a publisher or journal and will be published within 18 months from the date of the application. The scheme has a rolling deadline from now until 31 May 2021 or until the money runs out. Please send a completed application to email@example.com. Decisions will be communicated to applicants within two weeks of submission.
Successful applicants must recognize the support received from the Graduate School of Arts, Languages and Cultures in the acknowledgement page of the book or in a footnote at the onset of the article. Recipients must notify the Graduate School of the date of publication and will agree that their publication be mentioned in the Graduate School Newsletter and on the Graduate School Webpage.
No application will be considered complete without a formal publication contract (not an advance contract). For a journal article, a message on letter headed paper from the journal editor, specifying the volume and date of publication, will serve as evidence of forthcoming publication.
