Focus and Scope

Modern Languages Open (MLO) is a platform for the open access dissemination of peer-reviewed scholarship from across the modern languages to a global audience.

Current sections are: Chinese/Asian Languages; French & Francophone; German Studies; Hispanic Studies; Italian; Portuguese & Lusophone; Russian & Eastern European Studies.  

Publishing under the imprimatur of a leading university press, MLO marries the editorial expertise and marketing capabilities of a publisher that has been active in the field for many decades with current digital technologies designed to facilitate open access to content under a CC-BY licence.

ISSN 2052-5397


Publication Frequency

MLO has continuous publication.


Open Access Policy

MLO articles are open access immediately upon publication (Gold), whereby an author publication fee (APC) is charged after acceptance. The normal publication fee of £500/$750 has been discounted to £250/$350 for each published article.  Authors who do not have the means to cover the publication fee may request a waiver after acceptance and are encouraged to request more information.

As part of the discounted launch of MLO, institutions are able to become members for a discounted £1000/$1500, this entitles scholars in an institution to publish ten articles (at the equivalent of £100/$150 per article) without time limit, provided those articles pass rigorous peer review.

MLO is partly supported by the Liverpool University Press Authors Fund. This is used to support open access publication by early career researchers in the humanities and social sciences. LUP authors may donate all or part of their royalties to the Fund. The Press matches all contributions. Click here for more information
