MRTS Subvention Rationale and Policy

From its inception, MRTS has maintained as its goal the production of high-quality scholarship in handsome and durable format. We have retained that goal at ACMRS and have done all we can to keep production costs for each volume to a minimum. We also have gained considerable support for this endeavor from the university itself. But we still rely on additional support from external organizations to ensure that the quality of our books remains high and that their price does not put these books out of the reach of individual students and scholars wishing to purchase them. Comparable books from publishers of comparable quality are frequently priced well out of the range of most individuals.

We ask MRTS authors, therefore, to aid us in securing subventions to help defray the costs of producing their work. That aid can come either through authors' applying for subventions themselves or through advising us of organizations we may apply to on their behalf. Authors may not offer a subvention from their personal funds; and books will not be rejected for lack of a subvention.
