Journal of Greek Linguistics Moving to Full Open Access

Journal of Greek Linguistics Moving to Full Open Access

Leiden, The Netherlands  ()

Leiden (NL) / Boston (USA) / Singapore (SG) - 9 June 2016

Brill, the international scholarly publisher, is pleased to announce that the Journal of Greek Linguistics, which is indexed by Scopus and Web of Science, has become a full Open Access publication. To help the journal transition to a full gold Open Access journal, Brill will sponsor the journal by setting the Article Publication Charge (APC) at a lower rate for the first three years and by waiving the charges for authors unable to raise the funds for publication. APCs will be charged for all new submissions to the journal. In addition to the current volume, all back volumes will now be freely available.

The editors of the journal, Dag Haug, Brian Joseph and Anna Roussou: "As scholars and academics, we are in the knowledge business - we create, organize, and disseminate knowledge through our research, teaching, and editing. Getting knowledge into the hands of people who want it and to whom it will make a difference matters to all of us, so we applaud this move to Open Access for our journal."

Senior Acquisitions Editor Irene van Rossum is looking forward to continued cooperation with the editors on the journal: "The Journal of Greek Linguistics is an integral part of Brill's list of publications on the Greek language from ancient to modern times. With the move to Open Access we hope to stimulate further research into the rich history and modern uses of the language."
