【IAS】: 2024 Excellence Publication Scheme – Call for Applications


Excellence Publication Scheme – Call for Applications

The Institute of Advanced Studies in Humanities and Social Sciences (IAS) would like to invite applications for the “2024 Excellence Publication Scheme” (EPS). The application period is from March 28th to April 25th, 2024.

The EPS was established to encourage the academic staff at UM to achieve outstanding research results. It provides one-off funding and support for UM scholars to complete their outstanding academic works in the final stages and publish them in world-class publishing platforms in their respective fields. The successful candidate(s) will become fellow(s) of IAS and receive funding to alleviate their teaching workloads, covering some of their publishing expenses, paying for their postgraduate students’ attendance at international academic conferences, and so on.

If you are interested in the EPS, please fill in the application form and submit the documents listed below to ias.programme@um.edu.mo:  

  • Application form (Click and download)
  • Copies of the author’s contract or correspondence letters with the editor
  • Detailed curriculum vitae
  • Attachments about the other stage of contribution

Please take note of the following information regarding the application submission:

  • The target applicants for this scheme are internal faculty members of the University of Macau;
  • Applicants should have completed the main body of their work. In other words, at least 80% of a book, or the complete first draft of a research paper should have been finished;
  • It is preferable if the applicants can provide an acceptance letter/contract or initial comments and requirements of revision from the journals or publishers;
  • The applicants should obtain the approval and signature of the Dean and Department Head prior to submission.
  • “Section Three – Substitute teacher/general funding” of the application form cannot be modified after submission, and the subsequent allocation of funding will depend on the number of selected candidates and the information filled in that section.

Other notes:

  • The one-off funding is expected to be used up within the fiscal year of 2024, and the remaining funding cannot be carried forward in the following years.
  • The successful candidate(s) will automatically become fellows of the IAS and therefore belong to the fellowship scheme. Fellow(s) will still work in their original units, but should actively participate in the IAS academic activities, and timely submit academic outputs to the Office of the IAS for the record as required.
  • The publication of the successful candidate(s) may be included in the IAS Book Series or Journal Series.

For more details regarding the scheme, please visit the website of IAS at https://ias.um.edu.mo/excellence-publication-scheme-call-for-applications/. Applicants may consider their applications unsuccessful if they do not receive the notification within 3 months of application. Should you have any enquiries, please do not hesitate to contact us at ias.programme@um.edu.mo.

Yours sincerely,
