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

Brill and IFLA are pleased to announce the *2014 **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 
<http://www.brill.com/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.

In 2013 the award was given to Open Book Publishers, Cambridge (UK).
