Subject: New Journal - Current Issues in Language Planning

Edited by Robert B. Kaplan & Richard B. Baldauf Jr.

Multilingual Matters Ltd is pleased to announce this new journal for
2000. It will provide major summative and review studies spanning and
focusing the disparate language policy and language planning literature
related to: 1) polities and 2) major issues in the field. The first
volume, consisting of three issues, will appear in 2000, with four
issues per year in subsequent years. The polity issues will also be
available as monographs.

The journal will bring together two types of material: "The Language
Situation in..." and "Issues in Language Planning". The unique feature
of the second section is the use of web database technology to invite
comment on an extended abstract before publication of an issue and the
papers for two or three months after publication. After the discussion
is closed, the editors will prepare a digest for publication in a
subsequent issue of the journal. More information on the web site can be
found at

The journal Current Issues in Language Planning (ISSN 1466-4208) follows
on from two special issues published in Journal of Multilingual &
Multicultural Development in the 1998 and 1999 volumes. In 1999 the
Ivory Coast, Nepal, Sweden and Taiwan were featured. Polities for the
2000 and 2001 volumes may include the Czech Republic, Hungary, Japan,
Singapore, South Africa and Tunisia.
