Reprints and Subvention
The College will assist faculty with production costs and reprint costs for scholarly publications through the Scholarly Publication Subvention Fund (SPSF). All requests should be made using the application available on the Academic Administration web page and sent to the office of the Dean of the Faculty (DoF).
1. Reprints. Assistance will be in the form of the cost of 100 reprints, normally not to exceed $300 for a single set.
2. Page Charges, Submission Fees, and Copyright Fees for articles.
3. Scholarly Books and Artistic Works. Assistance will be provided (as funding permits) for tenured and tenure-track faculty to cover production costs when an academic publisher requires a subvention as a condition for publication. It may also be used for indexing, copyright or permission fees, or copyediting (i.e., copyediting of the final version of a manuscript after it has been accepted for publication). The funds for copyediting will only be paid to an independently-hired editor (not to the publishing press). The maximum grant amount for each book project is $2,000 and repayment is not required. Faculty members may apply to the dean of the faculty for a loan to cover production costs in excess of $2,000. Such loans are to be repaid by payroll deduction over a period not to exceed 24 months at an interest rate to be established at the beginning of each academic year. The remaining terms will be negotiated between the applicant and the dean as part of the application process.
Applications may be submitted at any time and must include a written contract with a publisher (if applicable). The faculty member may not be the publisher, producer, or agent.
