Message 1: New LINGUIST List Job Payment Policy
Date: 13-Jun-2005

Subject: New LINGUIST List Job Payment Policy

Dear Subscribers,

As you know from recent discussions on the list, LINGUIST List has
been having to rely more and more upon subscriber support to keep
basic services running.

This fund drive many subscribers suggested that one way to circumvent
increasingly longer and more expensive fund drives is to require
payment for all job announcements. Currently, only 42% of the
announcements sent to the list are paid for -- in fact, if we had
received payment for all of the 679 job postings that were sent in
2004, we could have foregone our 2005 fund drive!

Therefore, LINGUIST List is instituting a new job payment policy:
payment for posting job announcements will no longer be optional. As
most of you know, payment for job announcements is customary in both
paper and Internet publications. And LINGUIST offers employers more
than other announcement venues, i.e., posting, within 48 hours, to an
audience of over 21,000 linguists. So LINGUIST List job announcements
will continue to be a bargain.

LINGUIST List would also like to remind users that Support
announcements (for research and studentship positions) are as always a
free service of LINGUIST List.

Questions about the new policy can be directed to the current jobs
editor, Vanessa Manion (vanessalinguistlist.org). Submitters from
countries with hard currency restrictions are encouraged to contact us
when posting.

Thank you,
