INASP Innovation Grants for Projects Using Online Research Literature by Idowu Olabode : November 10, 2015, 10:06:56 PM
Innovation Grants for Projects Using Online Research
Literature

INASP works to provide access to online literature because
we believe that access to the best information leads to
strong research, better teaching and learning, and ultimately
national and international development. Some institutions
and researchers have been able to make better use of these
resources than others, so INASP would like to contribute
modest funding to projects in which the use of online
resources is shown to support your teaching and research.
These projects and approaches might be different for
different groups: researchers, students, lecturers, policy-
makers, departments.


You tell us

Do you have a project you are working on? What contribution has access to the necessary literature made (or what could it make) towards the project? Have you found ways to improve access to online books and journals so that people are using them more? Do you have an innovative idea of how you might increase online research literature usage? Perhaps within your research group, your lecture class, academics in your department; or in collaboration with local civil society organizations,government departments or communities.

Tell us about your project and tell us what practical barriers
are being faced and overcome in accessing online journals
and books. Come up with a practical plan of action how are
you going to find what you need tto make your work a
success? How are you going to make your project or
department stand out?

Your first stop might well be your librarian they know better
than anyonne in your organization what online books and
journals are available. A strong working relationship will be
a huge step in helping you make your research stronger, and
up-to-date.


Before you apply

Talk to your librarian, and any other potential collaborators.
Identify the barriers to using online books and journals in
your organization or field.

Make a start on identifying some electronic literature you
and others will use in the project $B!H(B include these in
your proposal.

What are we looking for?

Innovative projects that make use of, and encourage use of,
available online research literature, whether books or
journals or both.

These could be: research projects, evidence-based
development projects, collaborations with librarians in
reaching students, new ways to use of literature to support
teaching or many other options. We are open to a range of
proposals.

This call is open to individuals, institutions or organisations
in INASP focus countries as listed at http://www.inasp.info/
en/network/


How to apply

Send an application of no more than 5 pages, which should
include overall goals and objectives, proposed activities,
project lead, project monitoring and evaluation and budget
to apowell@inasp.info. This call will be open to 31st
December 2015, but applications can be submitted at any
time. We will consider the merits of each application and
respond to the applicant within 30 days of receiving it.
