Language Science Press

Language Science Press is an open access scholarly publishing house specializing in linguistics. This publishing house was formally set up in 2014, in a context of perceived overcharging by traditional publishing houses. Led by the renowned linguistic scholars Stefan Müller (Humboldt-Universität Berlin) and Martin Haspelmath (Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History), Language Science Press publishes high quality, peer-reviewed Open Access books in the fields of linguistics. By leveraging existing institutional infrastructures and utilising highly efficient work processes, Language Science Press titles are offered at significantly lower prices compared to traditional publishers. At the same time, these titles are made freely accessible to readers worldwide, broadening the impact of the works.
