Language and Computation is an independent electronic and paper journal
devoted to the publication of high level research papers on issues in the
interface of logic, linguistics, formal grammar, and computational linguistics.

It will be published quarterly, is sponsored by Oxford University
Press and FOLLI, and distributed freely from a web site at Imperial College,
London. The articles will be made available as compressed ps files which can
be downloaded from the web site.

L&C fills an important need for a journal devoted specifically to work in the
emerging field of formal and computational grammar. It is commited to rapid
publication of research. As an independent electronic journal, it is free of
the commercial and space constraints which restrict printed journals. The same
conventions which govern publication in printed journals apply to L&C, except
that authors retain the copyright of their papers. All articles will be
carefully refereed. A condition for acceptance in L&C is that an author agrees
that he/she will not publish his/her paper elsewhere, except with
acknowlegement of its original publication in L&C.

Authors are asked to submit a Latex file of their paper to one of the four
editors. If this is not possible, please send both a hard copy and an ascii
file of the text to one of the editors.

We hope to bring out our first issue early in 1998. At the end of our first
year of publication, we will consider the possibility of distributing a hard
copy of the first volume of the jour (distibuted by Oxford University Press)
to libraries and subscribers.

The decision on whether to produce a hard copy version of the volume will
depend upon availablity of the necessary resources.
