The Academic Book of the Future Project (funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council in collaboration with the British Library)


In January 2014, the Arts and Humanities Research Council, in partnership with the British Library, issued a call for collaborative proposals for a team to explore the Academic Book of the Future in the context of open access publishing and the digital revolution, with total project costs up to a value of £450k FEC, with AHRC providing 80% of the costs. The Department of Information Studies, University College London, fielded the successful proposal, with Dr Samantha Rayner as Principal Investigator. Co-Investigators are Nick Canty, also from UCL, and Professor Marilyn Deegan and Simon Tanner, Department of Digital Humanities, King’s College London. The Research Information Network (RIN), Director Dr Michael Jubb, is a principal consultant to the project. A Research Associate has also been appointed to work on the project. Rebecca Lyons, a PhD researcher in English at the University of Bristol, begins in the role on 26 January 2015. The project started on 1 October 2014, and runs until 30 September 2016.
