Dear all,

IFLA and Brill are pleased to announce the 2015 IFLA/Brill Open Access

The IFLA/Brill Open Access award is created to reward initiatives that
facilitate and/or promote Open Access Scholarly Monographs in the
humanities or social sciences. This is in line with IFLA’s stated position
on Open Access <http://www.ifla.org/node/8890>, which aims to promote open
access across its membership. This is also in line with Brill’s open access
policy <http://www.brill.com/open-access-policy>. “Open Access” in the
context of this award refers to any structural publication model, where the
reader does not have to pay a fee to access the leading version of a
monograph and where the content is made available without embargo.

The award will be given to the person/institute behind the initiative in
recognition of outstanding work and effort in facilitating, promoting,
advocating, raising awareness in regard to and/or disseminating Open Access
Scholarly Monographs published with an open license.

In 2013 the award was given to Open Book Publishers, Cambridge (UK)
In 2014, the award winner was Knowledge Unlatched, London (UK)

Africae (up to a maximum of € 1500)

·         The winner will be invited to attend IFLA Cape Town in person, or
may identify a person to collect the prize on their behalf.

The winner is responsible for registering for the congress, and booking own
travel and accommodation. Reimbursement of costs will be arranged between
the winner and the Brill/IFLA contact persons.

*The following groups are eligible:*

·         Initiatives that facilitate and/or promote Open Access scholarly
monographs such as projects or organisations
