Academic Associations Plan OA Publishing Initiative

The Association of American Universities (AAU), the Association of Research Libraries (ARL), and the AAUP (Association of American University Presses) will begin a new initiative this spring to increase the dissemination of humanities and humanistic social sciences research by faculty members in these fields. They will publish free, OA digital editions of peer-reviewed and professionally edited monographs. So far, 12 institutions have agreed to participate by incorporating the following components into their publishing projects: provide a baseline grant of $15,000 to support the publication of an OA title that is fewer than 90,000 words in length, award at least three publishing grants per year, and participate in the initiative for 5 years.

For more information, read the press release.
