Unfunded monograph authors: enter the library's OA funding competition
Unfunded monograph authors from any university department may enter the Library's Open Access (OA) monograph competition if they publish a monograph soon or publish on or after October 1, 2021, including eligible works from last year's competition.

Winners will receive funding from the Library to create their monographs in the public domain. The Library makes arrangements directly with the winners' publishers.
Send a paragraph of no more than 300 words explaining why your research would benefit from open access publication to uml.openaccess@manchester.ac.uk by February 24, 2023. Please include your publisher and the anticipated or actual publication date.
We especially welcome submissions from authors publishing in fully open access book publishers.


Open access book collection for UG and UMCG authors
The University of Groningen has introduced an open access book fund. Authors affiliated with UG and UMCG can apply for funding to publish their monograph or edited volume.
The fund will run through August 2023. Continued operation of the fund after August 2023 is contingent on renewed funding from UG/UMCG.
The maximum reimbursement amount is €8,000 (including VAT) per book.
The author(s) and/or editor(s) must be affiliated with UG or UMCG.
Ideally, publishers should meet the basic requirements established by the Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB). In addition to meeting DOAB criteria, publishers are (strongly) encouraged to assign a DOI to a publication and post it to the OAPEN-Library to improve its discoverability. The University Library will verify compliance with these criteria. If the requirements cannot be fully met, authors are encouraged to contact the University Library to discuss publisher eligibility.


DARIAH launches annual open access monograph scholarship for emerging digital humanities researchers
DARIAH-EU is launching an annual open access book scholarship for the publication of a first monograph in the digital humanities. The fellowship will fund the open access publication of one monograph (or other voluminous form of scholarship) per year.
The fellowship aims to support honest, community-driven players, and therefore publication in a DOAB-certified, honest open access publication venue with transparent pricing and in accordance with SPARC best practice principles with science communication services is set as the Absolute Eligibility Criterion.
The competition is open to novice researchers wishing to publish their first open access monograph.
The author's DARIAH affiliation or funding statement must be clearly identified in the publication, preferably even as part of the metadata.
The publication costs will be covered up to a maximum of 7000 euros (including VAT). In exceptional cases and with sufficient justification, an extension of a maximum of 500 euros is possible (e.g. CC-BY license surcharge).
