[Lingtyp] ALT Newsletter 61

I had not heard of S2O either until I received the ALT newsletter. The explanation is on the Annual Reviews website, as Sebastian indicates. But apparently Annual Review of Linguistics has not received enough subscriptions to become open access: I went to the current issue, picked an article, and was not able to access it.
However, I interpreted the ALT newsletter as saying if de Gruyter received enough subscriptions of any kind, including individual subscriptions, then it would shift to open access. I had subscribed for 2023 after subscriptions were split from ALT membership, because I wanted the hardcopy journal, at least for the time being.
Speaking of which, when I subscribed to LT through de Gruyter, I looked for a way to pay my membership dues on the ALT website since they are now split. But I could not find where to do it. Please let me know how membership dues will work now that the journal subscription is split.

Maïa took the words right off my keyboard. My initial reaction was the
same, but I postponed my reply as I wanted to look into it in more detail.
Do we happen to know how many institutional subscriptions there are for
LT? De Gruyter have presumably made some calculations for the
transition, which would be interesting to see. Without numbers, it will
be hard to evaluate the proposition.
This model was developed by Annual Reviews. You can find good
