I agree with Laura. I've been thinking about this for some time, especially since the existing 2 annual vols have become so thick, and have been thinking for a while that it might be helpful if OL could go to three issues a year. Obviously this will mean more work, and I apologise for suggesting that.

Dear John & the Austronesian community,
Is it possible to an additional issue of Oceanic Linguistics, so that it is
published 3 times per year instead of 2?
Thanks for all your hard work as editor!
