Open-Access Publishing Grant Applications Available

By University Libraries Staff

A University of Maryland program that’s part of a nationwide movement to revolutionize scholarly book publishing is now accepting applications for three grants of up to $15,000 to sponsor the publication of open-access, digital monographs by UMD faculty members.

TOME@UMD, a two-year pilot program of the national TOME (Toward an Open Monograph Ecosystem) initiative, will accept applications through Nov. 15. Faculty from all disciplines are welcome to apply, but preference will be given for those in the arts, humanities and social sciences.

Funded monographs will be published by a participating university press under a Creative Commons license and will be made openly accessible through a digital repository, such as the Digital Repository at the University of Maryland (DRUM).

TOME@UMD is made possible through a partnership with UMD’s Office of the Provost, the College of Arts and Humanities and the University Libraries. Learn more about author and manuscript eligibility and the application process at

Maryland Today is produced by the Office of Marketing and Communications for the University of Maryland community on weekdays during the academic year, except for university holidays.
