Call for submissions for the new Brill/IFLA Open Access award

Call for submissions for the Brill/IFLA Open Access award

Brill and IFLA are pleased to announce the new Brill/IFLA Open Access award.

The IFLA/Brill Open Access award is created to reward initiatives that 
facilitate and/or promote Open Access Scholarly Monographs in the 
humanities or social sciences. This is in line with IFLA's stated 
position on Open Access, which aims to promote open access across its 
membership. This is also in line with Brill's open access policy. "Open 
Access" in the context of this award refers to any structural 
publication model, where the reader does not have to pay a fee to access 
the leading version of a monograph and where the content is made 
available without embargo.

The award will be given to the person/institute behind the initiative in 
recognition of outstanding work and effort in facilitating, promoting, 
advocating, raising awareness in regard to and/or disseminating Open 
Access Scholarly Monographs published with an open license.

The prize consists of:
.       Cash prize (EUR 1000)
.       ILFA World Library and Information Congress (WLIC) 2013 
registration (EUR 500)
.       Travel to and accommodation to the IFLA WLIC in Singapore (up to 
a maximum of EUR 1500)
.       The winner will be invited to attend Singapore in person, or may 
identify a person to collect the prize on their behalf.
.       The winner is responsible for registering for the congress, and 
booking own travel and accommodation. Reimbursement of costs will be 
arranged between the winner and the Brill/IFLA contact persons.

The following groups are eligible:
.       Initiatives that facilitate and/or promote Open Access scholarly 
monographs such as projects or organisations
.       Individuals who have authored, facilitated or promoted Open 
Access scholarly monographs

Nominees can be suggested by the owners of the project, but also by 
third parties, e.g. by authors, who published their monograph in the 
framework of the OA initiative.

Application procedure:  Applications should be submitted to the
