Open Access in French and Spanish Language
Three leading publishers, Iberoamericana Vervuert, Peter Lang, and De Gruyter, have joined together to form an Open Access collection of French and Spanish Language titles in the fields of Literary Studies, Linguistics, and Cultural Studies. The collection will include monographs, collected volumes, and dissertations, selected by an Editorial Board of subject experts.
Why Support Romance Studies?
Together the 3 publishers will publish 12 titles in the fields of French and Spanish Linguistics, Literary - and Cultural Studies as Open Access per year.
These titles are 12 brand new frontlist titles which are financed by the participating libraries in the cooperative model.
The publishers also show their commitment by converting 11 backlist titles that were published between 2012 and 2017 at no additional cost to libraries.
The collection will be curated by a prestigious Editorial Board of 6 subject experts, 2 members of which will be appointed by each publisher.
The Editorial Board will cover a range of different institutions, as well as a variety of research fields in French and Spanish within the areas of Literary Studies, Linguistics, and Cultural Studies.

Prof. Dr. Susanne Hartwig, Cultural Studies, Spanish at the University of Passau
Prof. Pura Fernández, Research Professor at the Instituto de Lengua, Literatura y Antropología del Centro de Ciencias Humanas y Sociales (CSIC) in Madrid, Spain
