The AHRC is pleased to invite collaborative proposals to explore the Academic Book of the Future in the context of open access publishing and the digital revolution.
This is a collaboration between the AHRC and the British Library, with both organisations taking an active role in engaging with the successful research team. This is an open call and applications may be submitted from any eligible Research Organisation, or AHRC recognised Independent Research Organisation, except for the British Library.
An RO may submit more than one proposal, and may be involved in more than one collaboration.
A single consortium will be funded through this scheme, with total project costs up to a value of £450k FEC, with AHRC providing 80% of the costs, and lasting up to 24 months from October 2014.
Closing date: 27/03/2014
