Sam Bruinsma, Senior Vice President of Business Development at Brill commented:

Research published in our linguistics journals is not just of interest to specialists, but of relevance to humanists in fields such as anthropology, archaeology, classics, history or regional studies. By indexing articles in ScienceOpen we put our author’s research in a wider context and hope to increase the readership and discoverability of our open access journals.
