Open Call for Papers

Language and Public Policy, a new online section of the Linguistic Society of America (LSA) journal Language, invites submissions of original, high quality scholarship exploring and analyzing areas of public policy that benefit from the findings and methods of linguistics.

Submissions may deal with public policy concerns in the social sciences, education, medicine, and law, among other disciplines, from any level (local to international), that involve language as the topic (as in language policy itself), a focus (as in education policies), an instrument (as in legal policies), or a relevant variable (as in labor or civil rights policies). The section aims to highlight the relevance of language and linguistics to the policy arena through discussion of issues that bring them together. Multi-disciplinary and international contributions are welcome.

As an online publication, articles in this section will be disseminated as soon as they are ready and will be made available to anyone with access to Project MUSE. The articles will then be listed in the subsequent issue of Language and will be paginated in that context. After one year, everything published in Language will be made available on the LSA website to anyone, including non-members, thereby meeting 'green' Open Access standards. There are also options for arranging for immediate open access. For more information about online sections of Language and other developments in LSA publications, see http://www.linguisticsociety.org/content/update-status-lsa-publications.

To submit a manuscript, please follow the general guidelines for contributors to Language found on the LSA website at http://www.linguisticsociety.org/lsa-publications/language/. Manuscripts for publication should be sent to language@rochester.edu, marked clearly as a submission for the Language and Public Policy section. The editorial process for Language will be followed, with double-blind review of manuscripts by expert reviewers.

The Co-Editors welcome inquiries about possible article topics. Please feel free to communicate with us at the email addresses shown below.

John Baugh & Donna Christian, Co-Editors, Language and Public Policy
