Dear friends and colleagues,
I'd like to draw your attention to a survey on open access practices that my colleagues Emily Farrell, Dorothea Horst and I put together in order to help us better understand the challenges and opportunities relating to open access publishing in sociolinguistics and related disciplines. Publishing research open access is often regarded as emancipatory, allowing for a democratic distribution of knowledge. But does it really impact on whose voices are heard in linguistic academia? Does open access publishing impact on traditional academic hierarchies or does it imply new forms of gatekeeping?
People with experience in open access publishing but also scholars with little expertise in practices and discourses surrounding open access are kindly invited to participate in the survey and to share it within their networks.
To participate, follow the link

We would be very grateful if you participate in the survey and also if you could ​share it with colleagues!
Thank you and best regards,

Britta Schneider
