Dear Colleagues,

The third varia volume of the Journal of Language Contact is herewith
published and the third thema issue shall appear by end of 2010. The
already published volumes have been well recognized in the academic
field of language contact studies and the international academic
affiliations of the contributors, the thematic richness of the articles and
the scientific quality may be interpreted as a confirmation of the
journal's success. JLC is in the fore in its domain on an international
level and has received international attention. However, despite its
recognition it received not enough publishing support.

The attention of publishing house Brill in Leiden has, as a
consequence of its international recognition, been attracted to the
development of the journal. Brill contacted the editors and proposed to
continue the publication and diffusion of the Journal of Language
Contact one year ago. After examination of the offer and one year of
negotiations the editors have finally accepted because the
engagement and experience of Brill will guarantee the continuity of the
journal and provide the necessary publishing support, hosting and
promotion—while the scientific independence will be left untouched.
Although the future volumes of the journal will no longer be open
access, a moderate price schedule has been agreed on.

This will change:

1)   One volume with two issues of JLC will appear per year as
before. A distinction with the current practice is that most issues will be
regular issues, but occasionally a thematic issue will be published
which will be announced in advance. The number of pages will remain
350 pp. per year.

2)   Starting from volume 4, JLC will be published online and in print,
distributed under the terms of subscription of BrillL.

3)   The mode of publication of the actual issues varia 3 and thema 3
(volume 3) is and will be still open access. All articles can be
downloaded without charge as before.

4)   All issues and articles up to volume 3 will remain open access and
can be downloaded without charge as before. They will be however
accessible under the new future domain and are hosted then on the
new website of the journal at Brill.
