Endowment for staff salaries and other costs of producing and maintaining the online Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy.

The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (SEP) is one of the most significant and visible humanities projects on the world wide web, serving millions of pages annually to readers. This proposal seeks to build an endowment to ensure the long-term viability of the SEP as a free, open access resource that benefits academia and the general public. The proposal calls for a partnership between the SEP and the global academic and library communities, with the International Coalition of Library Consortia (ICOLC) and the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Research Coalition (SPARC) raising funds, SOLINET administering the grant, and Stanford University managing the endowment.
