Oceanic Linguistics

It has been the policy of Oceanic Linguistics to publish papers in a timely fashion, and until now, the volume of papers received has pretty much matched the speed of their publication. Thus, a paper whose final revised manuscript was submitted in February or March would usually make it into the following June issue the same year, and one submitted in August or September would usually be published in the following December issue.

We have come to a stage now, though, where supply is ever-increasing. The situation at present is that, in the middle of July, the December issue is getting quite full. In addition, there are at least eight papers currently undergoing revision, and at least six more currently under review. Although we can probably expand the size of the published journal somewhat, nevertheless many of those papers, even if submitted now, would probably have to wait until at least the June 2013 issue to see the light of day.

 This is encouraging from the point of view of increasing interest in the field, but not so encouraging in terms of rapid turnaround.
I am thus advising members of the Austronesianist community that we may no longer be able to publish all papers within a few months of their acceptance, and that rather longer delays are likely.
