A new journal on QUANTITATIVE LINGUISTICS will be launched in 1994. Authors
are invited to submit 4 copies of their article providing it is within the
scope of the journal.

The Journal of Quantitative Linguistics is a new international forum for the
publication and discussion of research on the quantitative
characteristics of language and text in an exact mathematical form. This
approach, which is of growing interest, opens up important and exciting
theoretical perspectives, as well as solutions for a wide range of practical
problems such as machine learning or statistical parsing, by introducing into
linguistics the methods and models of advanced scientific disciplines such as
the natural sciences, economics and psychology.

Specifically, JQL will publish papers on:
1) Observations and descriptions of all aspects of language and text
phenomena, including the areas of psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics,
dialectology, pragmatics, etc. as far as they use quantitative mathematical
methods (probability theory, stochastic processes, differential
and difference equations, fuzzy logics and set theory, function theory etc.),
on all levels of linguistic analysis.
2) Applications of methods, models, or findings from quantitative linguistics
to problems of natural language processing, machine translation, language
teaching, documentation and information retrieval.
3) Methodological problems of linguistic measurement, model construction,
and test theory.
4) Epistemological issues such as explanation of language and text phenomena,
contributions to theory construction, systems theory, philosophy of science.

The Journal of Quantitative Linguistics will be important reading for all
researchers in the following disciplines who are interested in quantitative
methods and observations: linguistics, mathematics, statistics, artificial
intelligence, cognitive science, and stylistics.

The Journal is edited by Reinhard Koehler, linguistische Datenverarbeitung,
University of Trier, Germany and will initially have 3 issues a year.
