Overcoming the Challenges of Linguistic Publishing through Technical Precision and Effective Communication.​


Glossa: a journal of general linguistics (Glossa) is a Diamond open access journal dedicated to general linguistics. It publishes contributions from all areas of linguistics, providing they contain theoretical implications that shed light on the nature of language and the language faculty. Long-term funding is provided by the Open Library of Humanities (OLH).

Glossa is published online as a continuous volume and issue throughout the year. Articles are made available as soon as they are ready to ensure no unnecessary delays in getting content publically available.

Services, Solutions & Technology


Proper representation of the varied languages that linguistics journals report on provides a constant challenge to publishers. Every mark on the page has a meaning and function, and typefaces, fonts, tables, technical representations, and mathematical formulas require exact precision. Successfully merging these complex requirements with the appropriate technology is an ongoing burden.


In 2016, Glossa started working indirectly with Siliconchips via Ubiquity Press. When OLH took on the publishing responsibilities itself, a direct partnership was formed with Glossa leveraging Siliconchips’ copyediting and typesetting services through the Janeway System platform.

The trust built through this long-term collaboration gave Glossa confidence in Siliconchips diligence and professionalism. So much so that it also uses Siliconchips Services for its sister journal, Glossa Psycholinguistics.
