FYI Body: John Benjamins Publishing is pleased to announce a new journal: The International Journal of Chinese Linguistics.

The journal aims to publish high-quality scientific studies of Chinese linguistics and languages (including their dialects) in either of two official languages: English and Chinese. With this aim, the journal serves as a forum for scholars and students in the world who study all areas of Chinese linguistics and languages from all theoretical perspectives. Studies to be published in this journal can be theoretical or applied, qualitative or quantitative, synchronic or diachronic, or any combinations of the above, and interface studies, such as those looking into syntax-semantics interface, syntax-phonology interface, semantics-pragmatics interface, are encouraged. As such, this is a comprehensive and general Chinese linguistics journal which serves as a true international forum for all Chinese linguistics scholars and students regardless of their theoretical and topical interests.

The journal will maintain a double-blind peer-review policy
