Dear typologists,

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: 
http://langsci-press.org/catalog/series/Diversity-Linguistics. The 
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 

Season's Greetings,
