TOME@UMD, a two-year pilot program of the national TOME initiative, is now accepting applications for three grants of up to $15,000 each that will sponsor the publication of open access, digital monographs by UMD faculty members. With a deadline of November 15, 2021, the process calls for applications from eligible faculty in all disciplines, but with preference given for those in the arts, humanities, and social sciences.
“Scholarly monographs are a critical form of knowledge dissemination in the arts, humanities, and social sciences,” said Linda Aldoory, Associate Dean for Research and Programming in the College of Arts and Humanities. “Yet, these books are often expensive and not readily available to audiences without institutional access to academic libraries or research libraries. Publishing open access books is one way to disseminate this research freely to a wider audience.”
