Dear ALT members and other readers of LT,
LT is appearing triannually, with March/April,
July/August, and November/December as the three
usual time windows where to expect an issue.
This year the first issue is a bit unusual
(commemorating 10 years of LT: see below for the
contents), a bit longer than usual, and a bit
longer in the coming too: it is currently at the
proof stage, and it should be out before the end
of May. With LT 11-2 we will be back at the
usual cycle -- to come out in July/August, in
good time for ALT vii.
On a different topic, further to an issue
broached in the editorial report in LT 10-3:
While linguistics and many of its journals, LT
included, continue not to get a good deal from
Thomson Scientific, there are now three other
comparative assessments of scholarly journals in
our discipline to draw on:
(i) the study of Nederhof et al (2001) reported on in LT 10, 2006, p469;
(ii) an initiative of the Norwegian
Universitets- og høgskolerådet (UHR) of 2004,
revised in 2006, for which see:
(iii) ERIH, the European Reference Index for the
Humanities, compiled under the auspices of the
European Science Foundation:
LT is doing well in all three ratings. Do
continue to send the good and topical stuff that
has gotten LT such good marks.
