The Journal of Experimental Linguistics (JEL,
http://elanguage.net/journals/index.php/jel/index) is part of the
Linguistic Society of America's eLanguage initiative. Like the rest of
eLanguage, JEL is an Open Access online journal. Regular publication will
begin towards the end of 2009.
JEL is a linguistic ''journal of reproducible research'', that is, a
journal of reproducible computational experiments on topics related to
speech and language. These experiments may involve the analysis of
previously published corpus data, or of experiment-specific data that is
published for the occasion. Other relevant categories include computational
simulations, implementations of diagnostic techniques or task scoring
methods, methodological tutorials, and reviews of relevant new publications
(including new data and software).
In all cases, JEL articles will be accompanied by executable recipes for
recreating all figures, tables, numbers and other results. These recipes
will be in the form of source code that runs in some generally-available
Although JEL is centered in linguistics, we aim to publish research from
the widest possible range of disciplines that engage speech and language
experimentally, from electrical engineering and computer science to
education, psychology, biology, and speech pathology. In this
interdisciplinary context, ''reproducible research'' is especially useful
in helping experimental and analytical techniques to cross over from one
subfield to another.
Publication is in online digital form only, with articles appearing as they
complete the review process. A rigorous but rapid process of peer review,
designed to take no more than 4-6 weeks from submission to publication,
will be supplemented by a vigorously-promoted system for adding moderated
remarks and replies after publication.
The editorial board, in alphabetical order, is Alan Black, Steven Bird,
Harald Baayen, Paul Boersma, Tim Bunnell, Khalid Choukri, Christopher
Cieri, John Coleman, Eric Fosler-Lussier, John Goldsmith, Jen Hay, Stephen
Isard, Greg Kochanski, Lori Levin, Mark Liberman, Brian MacWhinney, Ani
Nenkova, James Pennebaker, Stuart Shieber, Chilin Shih, David Talkin, Betty
Tuller, and Jiahong Yuan. Mark Liberman is the editor in chief.
