We are extremely pleased to announce that Professor Martin Paul Eve of Birkbeck, University of London, a co-CEO and co-founder with Dr Caroline Edwards of the Open Library of Humanities, has been awarded a 2019 Philip Leverhulme Prize for his research in the field of literary studies.

Philip Leverhulme Prizes have been offered since 2001 in commemoration of the contribution to the work of the Trust made by Philip Leverhulme, the Third Viscount Leverhulme and grandson of William Hesketh Lever, the founder of the Trust. The prestigious prize is for researchers at an early stage of their careers whose work has had international impact and whose future research career is exceptionally promising - to use for any research purpose.

Professor Eve said, of the award: “I am absolutely delighted and honoured to have been awarded this prize by the Leverhulme Trust. I have long advocated for scholar and active-researcher control of academic-publishing practices even while believing that publishing is a professional role that requires specialised labour and that should be properly remunerated. I hope, though, to have shown in my practice that this is possible; I have maintained an internationally recognised research trajectory while working extensively to transform scholarly communications in the humanities disciplines.”
