Library 2022/23 Open Access Monograph Competition: winning entries

We are pleased to announce the winning entries of the 2022/23 Open Access Monograph Competition.

This year, we received a record 33 entries from various Schools across the University covering a diverse range of topics.

The entries were considered by Neil Humphrey, Associate Dean: Research in the Faculty of Humanities, together with a representative panel, who selected the nine winning titles.  

This year we received an impressive range of entries from Schools across the University.  It was very difficult to make a selection, but we feel the winning entries are representative of the breadth and quality of research being carried out by staff at the University.

Professor Neil Humphrey of The University of Manchester
