Publications Subvention Program

Proposals Accepted at Any Time

The Publication Subvention Program assists full-time tenured and tenure-track faculty in advancing their careers through the publication of scholarly books by academic presses. Modest support (not to exceed $1,200) is available to help increase the quality of the publication, make the book more marketable and affordable, or respond to press requirements.

The Research Council members are interested in supporting publications that develop the author’s academic credentials in his or her area of expertise. This award does not support journal page charges, nonacademic or textbook publications, manuals, or fees from for-profit publishing houses. Manuscripts to be published by units of the University of Toledo are not eligible. In addition, when co-authors from other institutions are involved, this award may not be used to support the majority of the publication costs; the applicant should provide an explanation of divided costs and a calculation of necessary funds. Conditions of the award include recognition in the publication of the University of Toledo’s support.

The application must include the following:

  1. A signed cover sheet (available from
  2. A copy of the most recent version of the manuscript
  3. A letter of acceptance or contract from the publisher
  4. Evidence that the publisher is of high quality and that the publication went through a critical review process
  5. Verification from the publisher that the subvention is required or will substantially reduce the selling price to expand sales

The application will be presented to a Research Council subcommittee for review.
