NHPRC-Mellon Planning Grants - Call for Proposals


The National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) and the
Andrew W. Mellon Foundation invite 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, we hope to investigate the possibility
of creating a federated system or systems for publishing and sustaining
digital editions.

Developing the Digital Edition Publishing Cooperatives will be a two-stage
process for Planning and Implementation.

Up to eight planning grants will provide funds to support the first stage
of this multi-year endeavor, beginning no later than February 1, 2018. Each
project team will consist of a principal investigator to spearhead the
initiative, a lead representative from each of at least three participating
editions and the host institution(s). During the Planning stage, each
team will develop a proposal for implementing a Digital Edition Publishing
Cooperative. Planning grants are for one year and up to $100,000.

All planning teams would be eligible to apply for Implementation funding.
Three implementation grants of between $350,000 and $500,000, each for up
to three years, are expected to be awarded, for a total of up to $1.25
million. Implementation grants will be awarded in September 2019, with a
start date of no later than October 1, 2019. A full description of the
program, its outcomes, and a glossary of special terminology, are available
at: www.archives.gov/nhprc/announcement/publishingcoops.

Deadline for Proposals: July 6, 2017
