I am happy to let you know that Cambridge University Press has launched a new series: Cambridge Elements in Psycholinguistics. They have appointed me as general editor, and I am joined by an editorial board with wide geographic and thematic representation. As well as drawing this new venture to your attention, I'd like to invite you to consider participating by contributing your own work and writing an Element for this series.

The series is part of a new concept in publishing that has been developed by CUP over the last few years. Elements series occupy an important and fresh position between journal articles and monographs in terms of size, combining the best of traditional quality-controlled hardcopy publishing and modern online publishing with multimedia options. Elements are available in a range of disciplinary areas in the sciences, humanities, social sciences, and technology (see ). Elements in Psycholinguistics will appear in the Language and Linguistics series.

Elements are authoritative scholarly texts, written by leading scholars and rigorously peer-reviewed. They are intermediate in length (up to 30,000 words) and will be available online-first, with a relatively cheap print-on-demand option. This format promises a rapid publication turnround, supported by a globally leading academic publisher with their marketing experience and outlets.

Information about the Elements in Psycholinguistics series is available on the CUP website at The list of topics presented there is not intended to be exhaustive. Please have a look at the list, contemplating whether any of these might be something you could write on, and consider your own research work as to its suitability for this series.

If you are considering writing an Element for the series, I would be happy to discuss this with you informally at any time. However, for a formal initiation of the contribution process, I need to receive a short outline of your manuscript (of 2-3 pages length) which I will discuss with the editorial board to assess its suitability for the series. Full manuscript submissions will have to pass through the ScholarOne gateway, and will undergo peer review within (normally) six weeks. Once the final version of the manuscript has been accepted, the turnround until publication (online and print-on-demand) will be only twelve weeks. Authors retain copyright of their work. There is information for authors on this page: .

If there are any further questions or if you wish to propose a project for the series please get in touch with me. I look forward to hearing from prospective contributors.

With best wishes
