University of California Linguistics Faculty Statement of Support for Glossa

We, the undersigned Linguistics faculty of the 10 campuses of the University of California, state our support for the editorial team that has founded the fair open access journal Glossa after resigning en masse from Lingua due to the unwillingness of its publisher, Elsevier, to make the journal open access under the reasonable pricing terms desired by its editorial board. We recognize Glossa as the true successor to Lingua, and we pledge to support the new journal and its editorial team.

Furthermore, should Elsevier persist in publishing a journal under the Lingua name, we pledge not to submit our work for publication in that journal, nor to review papers or serve on the editorial board of that journal if asked. We also ask that the University of California libraries discontinue their subscription to Lingua.
