Beginning in 2018, InASA has established a publishing subsidy scheme designed to assist early career researchers working in Australian Studies.
Applications are assessed by a sub-committee established by the InASA executive. The committee will rate applications according to academic merit and demonstrated need for a subsidy. Priority is given to works that require a subsidy for their viability as a publishing venture, or for the inclusion of essential items such as illustrations, photographs or maps. Applicants need to prove that they have limited access to funds to complete publication of the work, or that without the subsidy the work would go either unpublished or be published in a diminished capacity. Please note that a Publication Subsidy cannot be awarded to books that are published before the committee makes its determination.
While InASA membership is not a precondition for applying for this subsidy, if the application is successful InASA membership is a prerequisite to accepting the subsidy.
For 2018, applications are due by 30 June 2018 to InASA secretary, Noah.Riseman@acu.edu.au.
The guidelines for the ECR Publication Subsidy Scheme are available here.
The application form is available here.
