26 Survey Results: Survey Questions and Responses
Sciences: 9; Social Science: 4; Arts & Humanities: 6
The majority of awards have been in the life sciences and engineering, but we have seen significant
numbers in the social sciences and a few in the humanities as well. We have funded authors in a total
of 33 academic departments/programs. Last year, on an experimental basis, we extended funding to
authors of two OA monographs published in the Press’s Luminos program. This year, we have revised
our funding criteria to provide ongoing support for OA book publishing. We expect that this will help
broaden the disciplinary reach of the program.
The sciences dominate funding requests. Only linguistics and law had applicants outside of
the sciences.
Vast majority of applicants are from the sciences.
