New Open Access publications with crowdfunding
Of about 50 books proposed by Peter Lang Verlag for the crowdfunding initiative "Knowledge Unlatched", 13 were selected by a jury of international librarians. The initiative collects money for the publication of books as Open Access.
We are very proud that among them are two books from the series "Speech Production and Perception" (ed. Susanne Fuchs (FB1 at ZAS) and Pascal Perrier). Volume 4 "Origins of Human Language: Continuities and Discontinuities with Nonhuman Primates" and volume 6 (in print) "Speech Production and Perception: Learning and Memory" will soon be available. Many thanks to the sponsors!

We are searching for research participants for linguistic experiments!
