The Norm and Sibby Whitten Publication Subvention Award
The Whitten Publication Subvention Award is designed to assist with the publication of original monographs and peer-reviewed articles that make an important contribution to anthropological scholarship on lowland South America or to the discipline more generally. Each year and while funds are available, SALSA will offer one subvention to offset the costs of publication of a monograph.
An Award can be applied to the following purposes: publication subvention for monographs; publication subvention for gold open access peer-reviewed articles; proofreading and language-checking of monographs and articles.
