Language Documentation and Conservation: New Journal

Email from Nick Thieberger:

I am writing to announce a new journal called Language Documentation and Conservation (http://www.nflrc.hawaii.edu/ldc) from the University of Hawai’i. This is an online peer-reviewed journal and the first issue will appear in mid-2007. You are encouraged to subscribe to the journal (which costs nothing) here: http://www.nflrc.hawaii.edu/ldc/subscribe.html.

I am the technology editor and am hoping you will want to contribute articles on methods for language documentation which may include (but not be limited to) software and hardware tools, techniques and workflows. These articles can be in the form of reviews of particular tools, announcements about new tools or methods for linguistic analysis associated with language documentation. We want to explore the possibilities offered by an online journal, for example in allowing larger datasets to be made available for corroboration of claims made in paper journals.

The deadline for the first issue is late March so please consider submitting that article that has been sitting around waiting for the right forum.
