Ling OA

Open Access publishing is often said to be the future of academic journals, but the actual move from a subscription model to an Open Access model is not easily achieved. Several international linguistics journals are currently moving from their traditional publisher to a new open access publisher, moving their entire editorial staff, authors, and peer reviewers from the traditional subscription model to Fair Open Access.

LingOA facilitates this radical move by paying for the Article Processing charges of the articles published in these journals during the next five years. The journals Glossa, Laboratory Phonology, and Journal of Portuguese Linguistics will be published (online only) by Ubiquity Press, but LingOA will work with any publisher who complies with the above Fair Open Access conditions. To ensure long-term sustainability, LingOA has partnered with the Open Library of Humanities. OLH, whose platform is also provided by Ubiquity Press, will guarantee the continued publication of the journals associated with LingOA after the first five years through its consortial library funding model. OLH is a charitable organisation dedicated to publishing Open Access scholarship with no author-facing APCs (www.openlibhums.org). This will provide long-term sustainability for Fair Open Access journals, ensuring that no researcher will ever have to pay for APCs out of their own pocket.

The Open Access publisher has to comply with the following conditions, a.k.a. the Fair Open Access Principles: …”

List of platinum Open Access linguistics journals – oaling

“This list aims to include all peer-reviewed platinum Open Access journals in general, descriptive, and theoretical linguistics, as long as they are open to submissions from anyone. Due to the fast-moving nature of the field it is likely to be constantly out of date. If you find that your favourite platinum journal is missing, that a link is broken, or that a detail is wrong, let us know on Twitter or by emailing George. The list was last updated in July 2017.

The list is built on the excellent work of Humans Who Read Grammars. It is in alphabetical order.”

Impact of Social Sciences – Flipping journals to open: Rethinking publishing infrastructure in light of Lingua/Glossa case

“The resignation of the editorial board of an Elsevier-owned linguistics journal and its open access reorganization could get the ball rolling for other journals to follow suit. Benedikt Fecher and Gert Wagner argue this case is a reminder that open access means more than just providing access to an article; it means rethinking the whole process of publishing. Open access also raises important questions about who owns the critical information infrastructure for online publishing….”

Linguistik – Linguistic Linked Open Data

“Linguistic Linked Open Data (LLOD) is a movement about publishing open language resources for different use cases in academic research, applied linguistics or natural language processing. The LLOD cloud comprises lexical-conceptual resources (dictionaries, knowledge bases), corpora, terminology repositories (thesauri, ontologies), and metadata collections (language resource metadata, bibliographies)….”

Ancient OCR: Storing, Cataloguing, Relating, and Exposing OCR Objects from the Open Philology Project – EUDAT

“The Open Philology Project at the University of Leipzig has developed a modular, multi-threaded OCR pipeline to reach our goal of digitizing 100,000 books in the next three years.  This pilot project gives us a way to store, catalogue, and expose the results of this pipeline, from original image to final OCR results.  The users of the EUDAT system will be at the University of Leipzig and Tufts University (USA).  The users of the data would be the same as those of the Perseus Digital Library, i.e., researchers and students in classical languages worldwide….”
