John Benjamins Publishing is pleased to announce that as of 2016 the journal Linguistic Approaches to Bilingualism will be increased from four issues per year to six, with the page count increasing from about 500 pages per year to about 750. 

In addition, the journal will become Online First, publishing articles online prior to the inclusion in a print and online issue.
Linguistic Approaches to Bilingualism provides an outlet for cutting-edge, contemporary studies on bilingualism. LAB assumes a broad definition of bilingualism, including: adult L2 acquisition, simultaneous child bilingualism, child L2 acquisition, adult heritage speaker competence, L1 attrition in L2/Ln environments, and adult L3/Ln acquisition. LAB solicits high quality articles of original research assuming any cognitive science approach to understanding the mental representation of bilingual language competence and performance, including cognitive linguistics, emergentism/connectionism, generative theories, psycholinguistic and processing accounts, and covering typical and atypical populations. 

Four types of articles appear in LAB: 

- General Research articles: 8,000-10,000 word articles that present original empirical research pertinent to the study of cognitive-linguistic bilingualism. 
- Squibs and Research Reports: These small articles should not exceed 5,000 words and should present research on ongoing theoretical projects or subsets of data sets making significant contributions that are time sensitive. Accelerated review will be conducted. 
- Epistemological Topics: these articles on topics of general epistemological interest in the sub-disciplines that contribute research to the journal will be between 8,000 and 12,000 words and will be by invitation only. 
- Spotlight issue: Annually, one Spotlight issue will be published focusing on research of one particular language, language family or a cohort of articles addressing the same theoretical questions within the remit of the journal. Proposals for guest editing this issue should be sent to the editors and not exceed 3 pages. 

This journal is peer reviewed and indexed in: IBR/IBZ, LB, LLBA, MLA, and Scopus.
