The American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) is now accepting submissions for the inaugural ACLS Open Access Book Prize and Arcadia Open Access Publishing Award.
The awards aim to expand free and open access to scholarly books in the humanities and are made possible by a grant from Arcadia.
In its initial competition, the $20,000 ACLS Open Access Book Prize will be awarded to two authors of open access monographs published between 2017 and 2022. The publishers of the winning titles will receive the Arcadia Open Access Publishing Award in the amount of $30,000 to support forthcoming books that would not otherwise be published open access.
The submissions period closes on September 1.
