Invitation: grant proposals for Digital Edition Publishing Cooperatives


The National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) and
the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation are pleased to invite implementation
grant 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, the Cooperatives will work together
to create and sustain one or more federated systems for publishing and
sustaining digital editions.

Several implementation grants of up to $1 million, for up to three
years, are expected to be awarded, for a total of up to $3 million.
Implementation grants will be awarded in December 2019, with a start
date of no later than January 1, 2020.

A full description of the program, including submission guidelines and
instructions, is available at: www.archives.gov/nhprc/announcement/depc
