The Lingua Dispute Continues

Inside Higher Ed is running a lengthy article on the dispute over the online linguistics journal "Lingua" published by Elsevier. The journal's entire academic board resigned in a dispute over the high prices Elsevier is charging.

Although the dispute is mainly over pricing and costs, there is also a component about exactly who founded the journal.

As academic journal publishing has tended to shift toward commercial publishers, the dispute has wider implications than just one journal in one field.
