A bstractWe propose new gauge invariant actions for open NS, heterotic NS, and closed NS-NS superstring field theories. They are based on the large Hilbert space, and have Wess-Zumino-Witten-like expressions which are the ℤ2$$ {\mathrm{\mathbb{Z}}}_2 $$-reversed versions of the conventional WZW-like actions. On the basis of the procedure proposed in arXiv:1505.01659, we show that our new WZW-like actions are completely equivalent to A∞/L∞ actions proposed in arXiv:1403.0940 respectively.
