De Gruyter Mouton and the American Psychological Association have started a unique publishing partnership which embraces the best contemporary research on topics where psychology and language intersect. In an unprecedented way, the partnership encourages scholars working on such diverse issues as bilingualism, language learning, autism spectrum disorder or gesture development, among others, to cross and illuminate the porous disciplinary boundaries between psychology and linguistics. In addition, the combined long-term editorial expertise, high-quality production procedures, state of-the-art electronic publishing strategies, and strong sales and marketing infrastructures both organizations jointly offer will be highly beneficial for authors, editors and readers alike. The publishing partnership finds its first culmination in the launch of the joint book series Language and the Human Lifespan, which features four volumes in 2016.
"APA is excited to partner with De Gruyter Mouton. Our innovative series will greatly enhance global understanding of language, psychology, and lifespan development," according to Jasper Simons, APA’s executive publisher.
“The prestige and reach of the APA and De Gruyter Mouton publishing programs represent an ideal combination of leading-edge scholarship,” says Dr. Anke Beck, managing director of De Gruyter.
