Join Sebastian Nordhoff von Language Science Press (LSP) and KU for a short introduction to the new round of LSP's funding initiative. LSP is the leading academic-led Open Access initiative in the field of Linguistics and much of its success is due to the very active community of linguists. Thanks to the cooperative financing model, there are no publishing costs to authors as these are covered by the funding from institutions from all over the world. 115 books will have been made available OA in 2018-2020 thanks to the support from libraries worldwide. The new round seeks to raise funding to make a further 90 new books available OA in 2021-2023.
Sebastian will briefly present the LSP model and talk about why the first round has been so successful, while also giving some key information regarding the second round and how to ensure sustainability for an OA books publisher.
The webinar should last a maximum of 45 minutes and will be recorded. Please pass on the invitation to any colleagues who may be interested in attending.
