Applications for publication support are hereby invited to the Aarhus University Research Foundation for grants in the fall of 2023.
The purpose of the Foundation's publication support is to ensure that important scientific works of particularly high quality receive support for suitable quality publishing and dissemination and thus can increase the knowledge of the University's research results in the international research world and in the general public.
Priority is given to cutting-edge publications with a special focus on highly-rated international publication channels, preferably large foreign publishers. In continuation of past practice, support can also be given to high quality publications published by Danish publishers. Publications in English, Danish or other relevant languages can be supported.
When publishing books (and e-books), linguistic revision can be supported. It is necessary that the manuscript (in its entirety) has been subjected to impartial peer review before the publication committee can assess the application. Please attach peer review to the application.
Furthermore, funds are set aside to support other types of media, including e.g. podcasts and other dissemination channels. Other types of media can also spread the knowledge of the research from Aarhus University to the general public and the Publication Committee hopes that such an expansion of the instrument will appeal to all faculties.
Deadline for applications is Wednesday the 6th of September 2023, at 12.00 noon.
Applicants can expect to receive a response to their application in December 2023.
The funding for publication support is DKK 2.5 million in 2023.
Applicants must be employed at Aarhus University.
Emeriti at Aarhus University can also apply for publication support, although emeriti do not formally have the status of AU staff. Emeriti are often still associated with research projects at the University and can therefore apply for publication support in order to publish results obtained through research at Aarhus University. A grant must be administered at AU, and it is therefore a prerequisite that there is sufficient contact to the university, so that the administration of the grant can take place at Aarhus University.
