I'm happy to report that the DFG just announced that for the next two
years it will fund "Language Science Press <http://langsci-press.org/>",
the new platinum open-access publisher founded by Stefan Müller and
myself (here's the DFG's press release
There are now eight book series published by Language Science Press. The
one of greatest interest to LINGTYP readers is "Studies in Diversity
Linguistics", which now has the first two forthcoming books on its page:
series is intended both for typological books (monographs and edited
volumes) and for grammatical descriptions of individual languages or
groups of languages.
In addition, you may be interested in the two series on African languages.
We expect to publish the first few books by late February 2014. We are
looking forward to further submissions, in all series.
(And in case you were wondering what "platinum open access" means: This
means that neither readers nor authors pay the publisher. Publication
costs are paid by the publisher, as a public service
