Research Design and Statistics in Linguistics and Communication Science is a new, peer-reviewed journal devoted to exploring how quantitative methods and statistical techniques can supplement qualitative analyses in linguistics and communication science; research on the quantitative characteristics of language and text in a more mathematical form. This approach opens up important and exciting theoretical perspectives, as well as solutions for a wide range of practical problems by introducing into linguistics and communication science the methods and models of advanced scientific disciplines prevalent within the natural sciences, economics, and psychology. It aims at the dissemination and publication of original contributions which bring developments and improvement in quantitative methodologies to the attention of both linguists and communication scholars. Research Design and Statistics in Linguistics and Communication Science invites original, previously unpublished research articles and book reviews in the field of empirical and quantitative approaches to linguistics and communication science. Contributions should contain empirical analyses of data from different languages and from different theoretical perspectives and frameworks, providing new findings and innovative approaches in any area of linguistics and communication science. We encourage submissions concentrating on, but not limited to:
Empirical language research
Information retrieval
Text mining
Methods of measurement
Computer-assisted content analysis
Fieldwork in linguistics
Translation studies
Authorship attribution
Language testing
Information extraction
Questionnaire design
Interview methods
Forensic linguistics
Text classification
Corpus linguistics
Natural language processing
Textometry
The journal also invites proposals for special issues on specific topics.
