Aims and scope

The series aims to publish high quality books with a focus on Slavic languages on the empirical side, which at the same time reflect the state of the art and current developments in general linguistics. This includes, e.g., theoretical work on Slavic linguistic phenomena, possibly cutting across subdisciplines, advanced empirical/experimental work on Slavic languages, introductions to the linguistics of a certain Slavic language, as well as linguistic handbooks or companions. The defining characteristics of the series is that it seeks a solid grounding in up-to-date theoretical and empirical methods, fosters mutual understanding of linguists across object languages and subdisciplines, and seeks to contribute both to narrowly defined Slavic linguistics and to general linguistics and linguistic typology.

Open Slavic Linguistics covers most linguistic subdisciplines (or their interfaces), including

  • phonetics/phonology,
  • syntax and morphology,
  • semantics and pragmatics,
  • historical linguistics,
  • psycholinguistics, and
  • computational linguistics.

The series invites the following kinds of publications:

  • monographs,
  • topical collective volumes

All books or papers included in them undergo a proper review process. Monographs  are reviewed by one of the editors / members of the editorial board and by an external reviewer. Papers in topical volumes are handled by volume editors and each one is reviewed by at least two external reviewers. See also the general proofreading procedure guidelines of Language Science Press: http://userblogs.fu-berlin.de/langsci-press/2016/02/08/reviewing-of-edited-volumes


We invite volume proposals of approximately 5–10 A4 pages containing

  • the planned title,
  • overall content and aims of the book,
  • structure (i.e. chapter titles, or titles of papers and authors’ names if any),
  • suggestions of a potential handling editor (from the pool of editors and editorial board) and/or reviewers.

Proposals will be evaluated by all the series editors and by selected members of the editorial board.


The series publishes books written in English.


Open Slavic Linguistics has the ISSNs 2627-8324 (Print) and 2627-8332 (Online)
