Our proposed solution is open-access publication in which the (freely available) electronic book is the primary entity. Printed copies are available through print-on-demand services. We are planning to set up a publication unit at the FU Berlin, coordinated by Stefan Müller and Martin Haspelmath, that publishes high-quality book-length work from any subfield of linguistics.
