Linguistics offers free access to academic publications and manages its own journals
A group of leading international linguists are aiming to make accessibility to academic research results less dependent on expensive commercial publishers. The editorial boards of various academic journals in linguistics are in the process of leaving their publishers or are renegotiating their collaboration. They will soon be publishing their articles on a universal free access basis at extremely low costs. Supported by universities, this unique initiative will be launched under the name of LingOA and is a significant step on the road towards open access.
