About EL Publishing

EL Publishing (ELPub) was established to publish top quality peer-reviewed open access electronic and print journals, multimedia and monographs on documentation and support of endangered languages. We publish on the theory and practice of language documentation, language description, sociolinguistics, language policy, and language revitalisation. All publications are free to download under a CC-BY licence and are published at no cost to authors.

ELPub builds upon extensive editorial and publishing experience of the Founding Editors, including 11 years of engagement with the journal Language Documentation and Description (LDD), published annually since 2003 and anonymously peer-reviewed since 2011. Peter K. Austin has been editing books and journal special issues since 1983. David Nathan has been a book editor and multimedia author since 1994. Julia Sallabank was commissioning editor at Oxford University Press for applied linguistics and language teaching methodology for 16 years (1990-2006) and has edited and co-edited books and journal special issues since 2011.
