The eScholarship Publishing program at the University of California is delighted to announce the publication of the first articles of Glossa Psycholinguistics (GP), a Fair Open Access journal for psycholinguistic research.

In their inaugural editorial, the journal’s editors-in-chief Fernanda Ferreira and Brian Dillon describe Glossa Psycholinguistics as “a venue in which research on understanding the psychological and neurological basis of language takes central priority, but which explicitly invites work that bridges many of the various research traditions and paradigms that constitute psycholinguistics, broadly construed. Our hope is that the articles published in GP will explore the human capacity for language from a range of perspectives rooted in different traditions of Linguistics, Cognitive Science, Cognitive Psychology, and Neuroscience, but at all times, the focus of the journal will be on making progress on our theoretical understanding of language as a cognitive ability.”

The launch of Glossa Psycholinguistics demonstrates the continued growth and success of its predecessor, Glossa: a journal of general linguistics, which was founded in 2015, following the resignation of the editorial board of Lingua (published by Elsevier) to form an open access journal. 

Glossa Psycholinguistics is funded through a combination of low-cost APCs (not required for publication) and generous financial support from the UC Davis Libraries; MIT Libraries; University of Edinburgh; University of Pennsylvania; the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, University of Cologne, Collaborative Research Center 1252 “Prominence in Language”, as well as management services provided by the foundation Linguistics in Open Access (LingOA).
