Full Title: Language Documentation & Conservation

Call Deadline: 31-Dec-2020

The journal Language Documentation & Conservation is announcing its new policy for accepting full-length articles on technological issues in language documentation and conservation. Until now we have mainly published reviews of software in our technology section, but we are now inviting articles on technology as it applies more broadly to our field.

The electronic format of LD&C means that articles can be published more quickly than a traditional journal, allowing cutting-edge discussions to take place before the technology becomes out-of-date.

Possible topics include:

Technological standards for language documentation and conservation
Methods/Work-flows for processing language data, both in the field and out of the field
Comparisons of equipment in different environments
Thoughtful suggestions for future directions for tech standards

Technology articles will receive full peer review, and should be written with an eye to making a substantial new or timely contribution to the field.

Instructions for submitting articles can be found here:


And as always, we are eager to accept technology reviews related to any aspect of language documentation, conservation, and/or revitalization. This can include software and hardware. Traditionally our technology reviews have been in written format, but we are also open to alternative presentations including video reviews.

Previously published technology reviews are listed below; if you are interested in reviewing another piece of technology -- or a considerably newer version of an item listed below -- please feel free to contact the Technology editor via email or see our Submissions Page for further information.
