Subject: A Unified Style Sheet for Linguistics Journals 
 


At the LSA in 2003, a group of linguistics journal editors began an 
ongoing set of meetings to discuss shared concerns. Prominent in  those
discussions has been our lack of a unified style sheet,  parallel to what
the American Psychological Association or the Modern  Language Association
have for their fields. Over the last two or so  years, some of us have
worked to establish a consensus style sheet  for references. We are now
posting the results of that effort with  LINGUIST
(https://cf.linguistlist.org/pubs/tocs/index.html). 

This style has been worked out in consultation with a broad range of 
editors, and it reflects broad, though not universal consensus. Most 
importantly, we see this as a step in an ongoing process: Some  journals
will adopt this sheet in toto, others will adopt it on most  points, but
define certain differences, reflecting the norms of a  subfield or
language-specific tradition.

This style sheet initiative is one project undertaken by the  Linguistic
Journal Editors'' group that has been meeting regularly at  the LSA
meetings and keeps in touch via an e-mail listserv maintained  at Ohio
State University by Brian Joseph; all interested editors of  linguistics
journals are welcome to join us at the LSA meetings or to contact Brian
(joseph.1 at osu.edu) about being enrolled on the listserv.
