Dear Colleagues,

In the context of the OALI initiative (Open Access in Linguistics: http://hpsg.fu-berlin.de/OALI/) and in the framework offered by the non-profit publisher Language Science Press (http://langsci-press.org), it is our pleasure to announce the new open access book series

Tanslation and Multilingual Natural Language Processing (TMNLP)

It centres around human and machine translation, with a special emphasis on empirical studies. This includes computational, corpus linguistic and cognitive aspects of translation. Examples of possible topics are:

- machine translation (statistical, rule-based, example-based and hybrid) - machine aided translation and interpreting - translation technology - use of corpora in translation - annotation, alignment and searchability of translation data - cognitive aspects of translation - modelling the translation process - multi-modal and audiovisual translation

The series encourages the submission of monographs, contributed volumes, lecture notes, (revised) theses and textbooks. The publication language is English. All submissions are reviewed by members of the editorial board.

This is meant to be a book series from scientists for scientists, with no commercial ambitions. The open access model used enables rapid publication and ensures high visibility through free internet access for everybody. But all books are also available in conventional printed form (with ISBN).

Let us highlight some characteristics:

- High quality standards ensured through peer-reviewing by members of the editorial board (see below) - Unrestricted free internet access under a creative commons license (e.g. all books

downloadable as PDFs, no special online readers required, no printing restrictions) - Server infrastructure provided by Freie Universitaet Berlin - Full text of books accessible via all major search engines - No charges for authors/editors - Efficient standardized publication process using the software Open Monograph Press (http://pkp.sfu.ca/omp) - Authors' and editors' communication partners are scientists working in the same field - Conventional printed books available via print-on-demand service at moderate cost

For further information, background and motivation, please have a look at http://www.ftsk.uni-mainz.de/esue/80.php, and at the OALI and Language Science Press websites (URLs see above).
