Emory Publishing Resources


In addition to the Digital Publishing in the Humanities initiative, sponsored by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Emory offers a variety of resources to assist in the development and publication of faculty’s digital scholarship.

Manuscript/Project Development

ECDS offers consultations and seed funds for initiating open access digital projects. Additional funding may be necessary depending on the scope and complexity of the project. ECDS may also collaborate with a university press on book projects with a digital component. (See Sounding Spirit, a collaboration between the University of North Carolina Press and ECDS.)

Emory Center for Digital Scholarship

The Center for Faculty Development and Excellence offers a grant program to offset the costs of professional editorial support for a range of project types, including book manuscripts and digital scholarship. Funds are not restricted to open access publications.

Scholarly Writing and Publishing Fund

Publication Assistance

Provides funding for books under contract with a scholarly publisher to offset such production costs as permissions fees, copyediting, and indexing. Funds are not restricted to open access publications
