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. Three awards of up to £300 each will be allocated this academic year. 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 press or journal and will be published within one year from the date of the application. The deadline for application is 5 p.m., 15 May 2015. Please send a complete application to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. Decisions will be communicated to applicants no later than 30 May 2015.
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.
Monies may be used to support digitalization of documents to publication standard, professional proof and copy editing or other publication costs.
No application will be considered complete without a formal publication contract (not an advance contract). For a journal article, a message on letterheaded paper from the journal editor, specifying the volume and date of publication, will serve as evidence of forthcoming publication.
