The third round of the DARIAH annual book bursary for the Open Access publication of early career researchers’ monographs in Digital Humanities has been launched.

An innovation of this year’s call is that all monographs qualify for a bursary from this year on, not only first monographs. However, first monographs will enjoy priority and get a bonus point during the evaluation.

The bursary aims to serve as a modest but immediate contribution to ease the current anomalies in Open Access publication funds that are usually not inclusive of monographs and support those who are less privileged in this respect but could possibly achieve the biggest change in academic culture and beyond.

By doing so, DARIAH-EU aims to further strengthen its long-standing commitment to paving paths towards open research culture as it specifically pertains to arts and humanities disciplines and to enabling early career researchers, who are usually less privileged in institutional Open Access grants, to openly disseminate their monographs in book series that are topically most relevant for their field of interest.

In terms of publishing venues, the bursary aims to support community-driven, fair players and therefore publication in a DOAB certified, fair Open Access publication venue with transparent pricing and in alignment with the SPARC Good Practice Principles with Scholarly Communication Services is set as an absolute eligibility criterion.

You can find important deadlines and eligibility criteria below.

The Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities (DARIAH) aims to enhance and support digitally-enabled research and teaching across the arts and humanities. DARIAH is a network of people, expertise, information, knowledge, content, methods, tools and technologies from its member countries.   It develops, maintains and operates an infrastructure in support of ICT-based research practices and sustains researchers in using them to build, analyse and interpret digital resources. By working with communities of practice, DARIAH brings together individual state-of-the-art digital arts and humanities activities and scales their results to a European level. It preserves, provides access to and disseminates research that stems from these collaborations and ensures that best practices, methodological and technical standards are followed.

DARIAH was established as a European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC) in August 2014. Currently, DARIAH has 22 Members and several Cooperating Partners in ten non-member countries.

Arts & Humanities programmes focus on a broad spectrum of courses ranging from history and philosophy to cultural studies and film theory. Subjects within Arts & Humanities are heavily theory based with an emphasis on the social sciences. These courses are aimed at those with an interest in working within the arts. Career prospects include jobs within fields such as media, journalism, teaching, social care, writing and much more. After completing a level 8 Bachelor Degree in the Arts, students may still be unsure of which career direction to take. Many courses within the arts prove to be very interesting and subjective compared to courses with a more business ethic or scientific approach. The career path after an Arts & Humanities BA might not always be as clear as a business or finance route. Hence, a postgraduate detour can be sometimes quite vital for some graduates.
