Please consider submitting your work or passing this message on to
someone you know who might be interested. In collaboration with
Frontiers in Language Sciences, Thomas Hills (University of Basel) and
I are organizing a Research Topic, ''Insights to the study of Language
from Network Science.''

The proposed structure of this Research Topic is provided below.

Host Specialty: Frontiers in Language Sciences

Topic Title: Insights to the study of Language from Network Science

Topic Editor(s): Michael Vitevitch, Thomas Hills

Description: Network Science--an emerging field drawing from
Computer Science, Physics, Sociology, Mathematics and a number of
other disciplines--uses networks to model complex systems. Although
network science has primarily been used to model social, biological,
and technological systems, this approach has recently been used to
model complex cognitive systems, providing novel insights into several
domains of cognition. The papers collected in the present Special
Topic examine the insights that network science has brought to the
study of language and language processing. These studies cover
many levels of processing (e.g., phonology, semantics, syntax), and
different language processes (e.g., perception, production,

Article Submission Deadline: Jun 01, 2013

Frontiers Research Topics are designed to be an organized,
encyclopedic coverage of a particular research area, and a forum for
discussion and debate. Our Research Topic receives a dedicated
homepage on the Frontiers website, where contributing articles are
accumulated and discussions can be easily held. Once all articles are
published, the topic will be compiled into an eBook for widespread
dissemination; it can be sent to all major foundations that fund your
research, to Frontiers' network of international journalists, and to any
list of organizations we propose. As the ultimate regularly updated
reference source from leading scientists, Research Topic articles are
frequently cited.

Frontiers is a Swiss-based, open access publisher. The fee associated
with the publication process varies depending on the article type, but
the standard publishing fee amounts to Euro900. Details on Frontiers
fees can be found at http://www.frontiersin.org/about/PublishingFees.
The publishing fee for accepted articles is below average compared to
most other open access journals - and lower than subscription-based
journals that apply page and color figure charges.

When published, your article will be freely available to read on the
Frontiers site, and will be indexed in PubMed, and many other
international archives (Google Scholar, Directory of Open Access
Journal, PsychINFO).

For general information about the host specialty, and to browse past
Research Topics (also referred to as Special Topics), please have a
