A town meeting was held at the British Library to launch the call for The Academic Book of the Future. This call, in association with the British Library, relates to the AHRC's Digital Transformations in the Arts and Humanities Theme. The call’s aim is to explore the future of the academic book in the context of open access publishing and the digital revolution. A single consortium will be funded through this scheme, with total project costs up to a value of £450k FEC, with AHRC providing 80% of the costs, and lasting up to 24 months from October 2014.
