Greetings from the Review Editors Team! The five of us -- four editors and an editorial assistant -- are all at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Our goal is to be the first source for high-quality reviews of newly published linguistics books. We encourage young scholars and advanced graduate students to write reviews, and we work hard to give extensive feedback to reviewers. With so many books being published in so many areas of linguistics, the Reviews area of LINGUIST is relevant to all linguists worldwide.

Our team has changed since the last fund drive (welcome Rajiv!), and with another review editor, we have been able to really get caught up and get things running smoothly. The turn-around time from review submission to the posting of a review is now often only about two or three weeks, if reviewers respond quickly with requested revisions. We are also just starting a new sub-branch of LINGUIST List reviews, the LINGUIST List review article! Our goal is to present longer review articles of important new work published in the field, starting with a couple this year and expanding as we develop a routine. So, keep an eye out for our very first LINGUIST List review article - it will be posted later this year.
Now that we've told you a bit about what we do, we hope that you'll show your support for this great service: https://linguistlist.org/donation/donate/donate1.cfm and making a donation?

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These
donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return
(U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact
your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your
contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the
EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company
operates such a program.
