Our heartfelt thanks are due to our sponsors at the EAC Foundation (in Danish: ØK Fonden) for their financial support.
Their generous grant has enabled us to develop a website that is far richer in content than our old site and which already allows for much enhanced communication and interaction between authors, readers and staff at the Press.
In the near future, we will further boost this interactivity. A particular focus will be to facilitate direct interactions between our authors and their readers, and the provision of a wealth of free material in support of our book publications and other ongoing projects.
Although not directly to do with the construction of this website, we should also mention that the EAC grant has provided important seed funding for our digitization project which aims to clarify the electronic copyright of all NIAS Press' backlist titles, to digitize all those that we have the rights to digitize, and to work with authors to enhance as many as possible of these digitized with new, up-to-date material. We will bring you news of progress through the Press blog, in our e-newsletter, and via the catalogue page on this site.
