This is to announce a new series in the innovative Elements family of publications from Cambridge University Press, namely, Cambridge Elements in Morphology (CEiM; see

For a project to be included in the CEiM series, the crucial core of its content is the study of words (elusive though the definition may at times be), their formation, and their interrelations. The scope of a series in Morphology is inevitably quite broad: not only functions and patterns, but also variation and change, mental and computational processing, and many insights and methodologies yet to be brought to light.

CEiM joins the growing set of topical series in Linguistics (and likewise in disciplines well beyond) as part of the publishing concept “Elements”, which stands in the format gap between the limits of conventional journal articles and the sometimes too ample demands of the monograph format (see ). The target range for an individual Element is set between 20,000 and 30,000 words (40-75 pages), with allowance made – encouraged, in fact – for the inclusion of ancillary materials online (for example, audiovisual samples, additional data, computer code). Elements are conceived as online first, with the option for printing on-demand. All submissions are rigorously peer-reviewed, with an eye toward publishing in its online form within 12 weeks of final manuscript acceptance. Authors retain copyright for their work. A range of user guides is also available to answer any number of specific questions for prospective Element authors (see

If you are interested in contributing to the CEiM series, the series editor can provide you with a proposal template upon e-mail request (completed proposals should range between 2 and 3 pages).
