Academic Publication Grants

GRANT FUNDS HAVE BEEN EXHAUSTED FOR 2015. NO ADDITIONAL APPLICATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED THIS YEAR. For information on how to apply for 2016 grants, contact Michael Spinella at Michael.Spinella@TAAonline.net

TAA members can apply for a grant of up to $1,000 to offset expenses incurred in publishing already accepted print scholarly journal articles and academic books, including academic journal page costs or university press subventions; the cost of preparing artwork, charts, diagrams, or images to be included in accepted journal articles or academic books; and journal reprint costs. (Non-members can apply for grants of up to $250.)

Grants are also available for expenses incurred as a direct result of research leading to publication of a book or article, including:

  • Interlibrary loan costs, or computer time costs incurred in the analysis of data, leading to publication of academic print materials.
  • Costs of single photocopies of source materials for research related to the publication of an article or book.
  • Costs of secretarial services incurred in the preparation of academic print materials.
  • Cost of permissions incurred in the preparation of academic print materials for reprinting images or quoted material.

Grant funds are also available for costs incurred by the author for textbook projects, provided the textbook is not realistically expected to yield royalties sufficient to recover the costs for which the grant is sought.
