NHPRC-Mellon Planning Grants

Call for Proposals

 

DIGITAL EDITION PUBLISHING COOPERATIVES

 

The National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation invite proposals for Digital Edition Publishing Cooperatives. Working together, the Cooperatives will develop technical and human infrastructures to support the digital publication of documentary and scholarly editions and to provide for their long-term preservation, discovery, and use. This initiative responds to the urgent need of scholars and documentary editors for reliable, sustainable, authoritative, and field-driven outlets for publication and discovery of digital editions. At the same time, we hope to investigate the possibility of creating a federated system or systems for publishing and sustaining digital editions.

 

Developing the Digital Edition Publishing Cooperatives will be a two-stage process for Planning and Implementation.

 

Up to eight planning grants will provide funds to support the first stage of this multi-year endeavor, beginning no later than February 1, 2018. Each project team will consist of a principal investigator to spearhead the initiative, a lead representative from each of at least three participating editions and the host institution(s). During the Planning stage, each team will develop a proposal for implementing a Digital Edition Publishing Cooperative. Planning grants are for one year and up to $100,000.

 

All planning teams would be eligible to apply for Implementation funding. Three implementation grants of between $350,000 and $500,000, each for up to three years, are expected to be awarded, for a total of up to $1.25 million. Implementation grants will be awarded in September 2019, with a start date of no later than October 1, 2019. A full description of the program, its outcomes, and a glossary of special terminology, are available at: www.archives.gov/nhprc/announcement/publishingcoops.

 

Deadline for Proposals: July 6, 2017
