The Ohio State University Libraries is partnering with the Association of American Universities (AAU), Association of Research Libraries (ARL), and the Association of University Presses (AAUP) on an Open Access digital monograph publishing initiative that will advance the wide dissemination of humanities and humanistic social science scholarship.

Under this initiative, peer-reviewed and professionally edited university press humanities and humanistic social sciences monographs will be funded through partnering universities and published as Open Access digital editions, available at no cost to the public.

The Ohio State University Libraries is offering subventions for scholarly monographs in the humanities and the humanistic social sciences. The Libraries will provide a publishing grant of up to $15,000 to a participating university press to support the publication of an Open Access, digital monograph of 90,000 words or less. We have set a target of awarding three publishing grants per year and we are committed to participating in this initiative for five years (2017 to 2021).

OSU tenure-track faculty members can apply for subvention funds upon acceptance of their peer-reviewed manuscript by a participating university press. Applications will be reviewed by the OSU Open Access Monograph Initiative Selection Advisory Committee and awarded by the University Libraries Open Access Monograph Initiative Steering Group. The Steering Group is currently accepting expressions of interest.

The Ohio State Open Access Monograph Initiative is funded by The Ohio State University Libraries.
