The LEAP Projects: Call for Proposals for LEAP II (NOW CLOSED)

Internet Archaeology invites proposals for integrated electronic publications and archives for publication in the journal, with digital archiving by an appropriate US-based digital repository (or by the Archaeology Data Service), under the Making the LEAP II project. Proposals must be from projects hosted in North American institutions.

With the support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Internet Archaeology is offering $6600 to four successful applicants to facilitate article and archive preparation.

We seek four exemplars to investigate novel ways in which Internet publication can provide broad access to research findings in the Arts and Humanities, and can also make underlying data available in such a way so that readers are enabled to "drill down" seamlessly into online archives to test interpretations and develop their own conclusions.

Priority will be given to projects within the fields of Archaeology, Classics, Ancient and Medieval History and CRM as long as the subject falls within the editorial scope of Internet Archaeology.

Successful projects will be given dedicated editorial support to explore novel strategies for e-publication and to bring the article to publication (including mark-up and managing of the peer review process). Funding is also available to cover archiving costs. It will be necessary to impose a strict timetable to achieve the publication of each exemplar. Exemplar 1 should be submitted in full by April 2009 so that it reaches publication in Autumn 2009.

In summary, authors can expect:

Please contact the Editor, Judith Winters (editor@intarch.ac.uk), as soon as possible to discuss suitability of your project before submitting your proposal.
