Thank you for considering The LINGUIST List as an avenue to advertise your publication. If it is an abstract for your dissertation or academic paper that you are interested in submitting, you may do so by creating a profile in our Directory of Linguists and logging in. Due to the amount of work it takes to process the large number of submissions that we receive, any other publication—Books, Journals, Journal Call for Papers, and Journal Table of Contents—must be handled directly with publishers. By charging publishers for advertising on The LINGUIST List we are able to offer our services free of charge to our over 25,000 subscribers from around the world.
It may be that the publisher of your work is already listed in our comprehensive directory of Linguistic Publishers or is perhaps even a Supporting Publisher. If so, simply contact the publisher's office and ask that an announcement be submitted. If your publisher is not a supporter of The LINGUIST List, maybe you could convince them to become one! Often all it takes is for a professional linguist to tell them how valuable posting on The LINGUIST List would be to them. You can point them to our Publisher Information page
or have them contact the Publications Team directly at
We understand that a lot of work goes into writing and editing, and we hope that this process does not deter you from seeking an announcement of your work from The LINGUIST List. Because we are eager to raise international awareness of any resource that will enrich the linguistics community, we are very willing to be accommodating to special circumstances. We look forward to hearing from you or your publisher soon!
