Summary: 
The Aid to Scholarly Journals funding opportunity’s goal is to increase dissemination, access to, and readership for, original research results in the social sciences and humanities.

Aid to Scholarly Journals grants are tenable for three years. The maximum value of an Aid to Scholarly Journals grant is $30,000 per annum. The value of the basic grant will be calculated on the basis of $850 for each approved, peer reviewed scholarly article to be published during each year of the grant period.

As part of the total grant value, the applicant may request up to $5,000 per annum for each of the two following expenses:

  • distribution costs, or those costs directly related to the print or electronic circulation of the journal (i.e., printing and mailing costs, or fees paid to electronic-service providers); and
  • costs directly related to transitioning to or maintaining an electronic format (e.g., the purchase of new computers and/or software; and/or costs related to launching a website, supporting an existing website, and/or training staff).

If funds are requested for the above expenses, applicants must provide detailed estimates of costs.
