February 25, 2013 /3BL Media/ - The Scaliger Institute and Elsevier invite scholars and researchers to submit proposals for the 2013 Elsevier fellowship at the Scaliger Institute of Leiden University Library.

Elsevier is a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services. The company works in partnership with the global science and health communities to publish more than 2,000 journals, including The Lancet and Cell, and close to 20,000 book titles, including major reference works from Mosby and Saunders. Elsevier’s online solutions include SciVerse ScienceDirect, SciVerse Scopus, Reaxys, MD Consult and Nursing Consult, which enhance the productivity of science and health professionals, and the SciVal suite and MEDai’s Pinpoint Review, which help research and health care institutions deliver better outcomes more cost-effectively.

The Elsevier fellowship enables scholars to study 16th -18th century scientific scholarship and publishing.

Since the object of the Fellowship is primarily to promote research in the Special Collections of Leiden University Library and the Elsevier Heritage Collection, the Fellow(s) will not be required to undertake any undergraduate teaching, but will be required to deliver at least one paper or lecture, and might run graduate masterclasses, attend seminars and symposia or deliver other papers.

The Elsevier fellowship provides € 1.000 a month for a minimum of 1 month and a maximum of 3 months.
 

Applicants must submit the following information:

* A 1-3 page research proposal. Applicants should address specifically the relationship between their proposed project and the primary sources to be consulted in the Special Collections of Leiden University

* A list of books and/or manuscripts that are going to be consulted in Leiden University Library  (http://www.library.leiden.edu/) and/or the Elsevier Heritage Collection (see: Elsevier Heritage Collection), including shelfmarks
* The projected beginning and ending dates of on-site research
* A list of publications
* A curriculum vitae
* 2 letters of support from academic or other scholars
