The first time a funding request arrives for publishing a monograph, edited volume or conference proceedings with a publisher that hasn't been funded before, a list of five questions is sent out to the book author/editor so that they're jointly answered by the author and the publisher. These technical requirements must be met in order for a funding request for a book to be accepted. Besides this, it's always useful to provide a link to any Open Access book that the publisher may have published previously in order to double-check the publishing standards that were applied to it.

  • Will a DOI be provided to the book upon publication?
  • Will the FP7 project be acknowledged in the book?
  • What CC licence will the book be published under?
  • The policy guidelines for this funding initiative mention the requirement to make available a text-minable version (ideally an XML version) besides the standard PDF one. For books, Epub could be an alternative to XML, but some text-minable version should be made available.
  • There is a requirement in the guidelines to have the final version of the funded output deposited in an OpenAIRE-compliant repository. Could we confirm if the publisher is able to do this on its own, and otherwise, if there would be any problem with our depositing it ourselves?

Publishers in the list below have already been checked for compliance with the technical requirements, so a funding request for publishing a book with them would be directly accepted if the standard eligibility criteria are met. There are of course many other eligible book publishers, but before agreeing to fund a specific book we would first need to check whether they meet these specific requirements. When a book publisher is not featured in this list, the project reviewer will ask for a confirmation of the publisher that they will meet our technical requirements.
