Call for applications for the OLH Open Access Award 2020

The Open Library of Humanities (OLH) is launching the OLH Open Access Award 2020, a fund dedicated to promoting the benefits and impact of open access to humanities scholars and disciplines and to knowledge worldwide.

They welcome applications that further their commitment to creating an open access scholarly environment within academia and beyond, and reflect their mission: to support and extend open access to scholarship in the humanities – for free, for everyone, for ever.

Applications for OLH funding of up to £500 are welcomed from individuals or organisations in any location, and may be used to help fund events, projects or activities on open access or with an open access component, or other related costs that will be considered on a case-by-case basis in accordance with need and feasibility.

Please note that the award is for projects that will promote open access within the humanities disciplines as widely as possible, and so will not be awarded to pay for individual Article Processing Charges (APCs) or article fees.

The application deadline is Friday 22nd May 2020; applications should be emailed to Dr Rose Harris-Birtill at
