UNT Libraries Scholarly Publishing Services is pleased to announce a competition for grants to UNT teaching faculty for use towards publication fees to publish new works of scholarship under the Eagle Editions imprint. Thanks to generous support from the UNT Libraries' Dean's Innovation Fund, UNT Libraries Scholarly Publishing Services will make up to five grants of up to $1,000 in the fall of 2015.

At least one of the authors of editors of the work of scholarship must be a non-tenure-track teaching faculty at any UNT campus. Applications must include:

  • a complete manuscript for the book
  • an abstract of the manuscript (no more than 1,000 words)
  • a short statement (no more than 1,000 words) explaining the value of making this work available for free online and, optionally, for sale in print and/or e-book formats

Applications must be submitted by October 1, 2015 to Kevin.Hawkins@unt.edu. They will be reviewed by a committee including representatives from the UNT Libraries, the Office of Faculty Success, and colleges on the Denton campus. Decisions are expected in November 2015 with publication to take place during 2016.
