Open Generative Syntax

Aims and Scope

Syntactic theory is a vibrant and central area of current linguistic research. The series provides a venue for reporting exciting research on any topic that advances our understanding of the syntactic component of the human language faculty from a broadly generative perspective. Volumes accepted for the series may vary widely in format, ambition, perspective, and subject matter. The series is open to studies focusing on topics in comparative syntax, formal syntax, and interfaces with syntax. A contribution to the series might report, for example, discoveries about the syntax of a particular language or language family, proposals concerning the formal properties of the syntactic component as a whole, typological questions advancing theories of syntax, experimental investigations that bear on issues of importance to the overall theory of syntax, and more. What unites the series is a commitment to the development of syntactic theory and a constructive engagement with current substantive debates in the field.

Languages

We accept submissions in English.

Proposing a book

We request that a prospective author or volume editor submit a book proposal (as a single PDF document) to the series editors for initial consideration. This proposal should include:

  • a tentative table of contents;
  • a 2-3 page text description of the overall volume content;
  • abstracts of each envisioned chapter; and
  • a brief comparison with books already available on the same topic that expresses what will be distinctive about this new work.

The total proposal for a monograph should not be more than 10 pages, although for an edited volume a slightly longer proposal might be required in some cases. (Consult with the series editors if the details of a proposed volume seem to require a longer proposal.)

The affiliations of all authors should be included.

The proposal is discussed by the series editors at their monthly meeting. If their decision is positive (this stage takes about one month), then upon submission of a full manuscript, the workflow described at http://langsci-press.org/forAuthors is initiated, including peer review by members of the editorial board or its delegates.

As with conventional print volumes, the coherence of the volume as a whole is an important consideration. This is especially relevant to edited volumes, with the implication that OGS will not normally publish conference proceedings or festschrifts as such.
