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 were Nick Canty, also from UCL, and Professor Marilyn Deegan and Simon Tanner, Department of Digital Humanities, King’s College London. Dr Michael Jubb was a principal consultant to the project. Rebecca Lyons (Bristol/UCL) was the Project’s Research Associate.

The project started on 1 October 2014, and ran formally until 30 September 2016.
