Publication Subsidies PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 11 May 2009 21:26

Publication Subsidies, limited support towards the publication of high quality archaeological research on topics that further the aims of WAC. Priority is given to publications that are most closely aligned with the WAC objectives and support the Codes of Ethics. WAC occasionally provides small subsidies, usually around $US 1000, in support of publications of volumes from regions or on subjects where archaeological publication is difficult or the subject under-represented. Usually these will be edited volumes of conference proceedings where the subject might have an impact beyond the regional audience. WAC also encourages publication of such materials in non-print media. In consideration of the subsidy, WAC asks that 50 free copies be provided for distribution in the Global Libraries Program, that an abstract of each paper be provided for translation and posting on WAC's web site, and that WAC's support of publication be acknowledged prominently within the volume.

Organizations or individuals requesting such a subsidy should provide a prospectus describing the importance of the materials, probable audiences, an outline of chapters or contributors, and a plan for distribution of the volume. All requests will be considered by the Executive (or an appointed sub-committee of the Executive), and their decision is final. WAC usually will respond within one month of receipt of the application. Please be aware that funds are limited and that requests will be dealt with on a first-come-first-served basis.

The World Archaeological Congress is a non-profit organization: WAC 501(c)(3) 52-2294579 074000010 697011369
