UPEI Internal Publication Awards

The Vice-President Academic and Research will make available up to two awards per year to support the publication of manuscripts written or edited by UPEI faculty. The awards of $7,500 each will be disbursed to Island Studies Press to cover publication costs (including editing, photo and other permissions, design, printing, marketing, and other costs associated with publishing a book). Authors will be offered ISP's standard publication contract, which ensures authorial copyright and includes a royalty structure. Authors will also see their manuscript reviewed through a peer-review process.
 
ELIGIBILITY: Manuscripts that are written and/or edited by UPEI faculty (including contract and sessional faculty) are eligible. These may be single-authored results of academic research projects; textbooks; edited proceedings of a conference; or works of fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, or drama that pertain to the author(s)' discipline. 
 
APPLICATION DEADLINE: March 1st, 2018 to Research Services, Kelley Memorial Building, Room 200 or electronically to researchservices@upei.ca. Depending on demand, a second call may be made with an October deadline.
