Message 1: A Unified Style Sheet for Linguistics Journals
Date: 02-May-2007
From: Joseph Salmons <jsalmonswisc.edu>
Subject: A Unified Style Sheet for Linguistics Journals

At the LSA in 2003, a group of linguistics journal editors began an
ongoing set of meetings to discuss shared concerns. Prominent in those
discussions has been our lack of a unified style sheet, parallel to what
the American Psychological Association or the Modern Language Association
have for their fields. Over the last two or so years, some of us have
worked to establish a consensus style sheet for references. We are now
posting the results of that effort with LINGUIST

This style has been worked out in consultation with a broad range of
editors, and it reflects broad, though not universal consensus. Most
importantly, we see this as a step in an ongoing process: Some journals
will adopt this sheet in toto, others will adopt it on most points, but
define certain differences, reflecting the norms of a subfield or
language-specific tradition.

This style sheet initiative is one project undertaken by the Linguistic
Journal Editors'' group that has been meeting regularly at the LSA
meetings and keeps in touch via an e-mail listserv maintained at Ohio
State University by Brian Joseph; all interested editors of linguistics
journals are welcome to join us at the LSA meetings or to contact Brian
(joseph.1osu.edu) about being enrolled on the listserv.
