All six editors and all 31 editorial board members of Lingua, one of the
top journals in linguistics, last week resigned to protest Elsevier's
policies on pricing and its refusal to convert the journal to an
open-access publication that would be free online. As soon as January, when
the departing editors' noncompete contracts expire, they plan to start a
new open-access journal to be called Glossa.
