*JLC INFORMATION * : Change of state
The third VARIA volume of the* Journal of Language Contact* is herewith
published and the third THEMA issue shall appear by end of 2010. The already
published volumes have been well recognized in the academic field of
Language Contact studies and the international academic affiliations of the
contributors, the thematic richness of the articles and the scientific
quality may be interpreted as a confirmation of the journals success. JLC is
in the fore in its domain on an international level and has received
international attention. However, despite its recognition it received not
enough publishing support.
The attention of publishing house Brill in Leiden has, as a consequence of
its international recognition, been attracted to the development of the
journal. BRILL has contacted the editors and proposed to continue the
publication and diffusion of the* Journal of Language Contact* one year ago.
After examination of the offer and one year of negotiations the editors have
finally accepted because the engagement and experience of BRILL will
guarantee the continuity of the journal and provide the necessary publishing
support, hosting and promotion—while the scientific independence will be
left untouched. Although the future volumes of the journal will no longer be
open access, a moderate pricing of has been agreed on.
This will change:
*1) *One volume with two issues of JLC will appear per year as before. A
distinction with the current practice is that most issues will be regular
issues, but occasionally a thematic issue will be published which will be
announced in advance. The number of pages will remain 350 pp. per year.
*2) *Starting from volume 4, JLC will be published online and in print,
distributed under the terms of subscription of BRILL.
*3) *The mode of publication of the actual issues VARIA 3 and THEMA 3
(volume 3) is and will be still open access. All articles can be downloaded
without charge as before.
*4) *All issues and articles up to volume 3 will remain open access and
can be downloaded without charge as before. They will be however accessible
under the new future domain and are hosted then on the new website of the
journal at BRILL.
We hope you will also visit our site http://www.jlc-journal.org/
We would also like to invite you to distribute this
announcement to all your colleagues who might be interested. Thank you very
much in advance for your prospective support, comments and suggestions.
