Pasold Research Fund/Taylor & Francis

Textile History Open Access First Publication Award 

Online Open Access allows work to be freely disseminated on publication. It facilitates the wide and speedy circulation of new work, promotes the author and increases the likelihood of citation. 
The Pasold Research Fund/Taylor & Francis Open Access First Publication Award for early-career scholars provides for one article per issue to be published in Textile History with free online Gold Open Access. (The article will also be published in a print issue of the journal.)
Eligible authors:

  • will not have any prior publications at the time of submission to Textile History


  • will be either a graduate student or will have graduated within the three years prior to submission and be working in any form of public humanities including, but not limited to, higher education, museums and galleries, and conservation, or as independent scholars.

Submissions are especially encouraged from authors with limited institutional support for Open Access publication.
Articles can be submitted at any time and should follow the usual Textile History submission procedure, as part of which you will be asked to indicate that you wish to be considered for the award. All articles will be subject to standard peer review and will be considered for publication in Textile History whether or not they are awarded Open Access. Authors may submit more than one article for consideration but an author may receive the Award only once. Award recipients will be selected by the editors whose decision is final and who reserve the right to withhold the Award if no eligible submissions are received.
Questions about the Award should be emailed to the editors at: and/or
