Call for Papers—Rice Working Papers in Linguistics
The Rice Linguistics Society (RLS) solicits sumbissions from all
subfields of linguistics for online publication in the Rice Working
Papers in Linguistics. Graduate students and postdocs are strongly
encouraged to submit. We especially welcome submissions in line with
our department’s focus on functional, usage-based aproaches to
language study, including but not limited to the following topics:
typology and language universals
field studies in Native American, Australian, Austronesian, African,
and other languages
phonetics and speech processing
language change and grammaticization
**The new deadline for receipt of submissions is October 1, 2008.**
Papers submitted to RLS's working papers must be previously
unpublished works. Copyright remains with the author(s) of the
individual papers, however, and publication in the Working Papers
does not prevent publication elsewhere at a later date.
RLS accepts only electronic submissions for the working papers. These
must be sent to rls at rice.edu and the body of the e-mail should include:
· title of paper
· name(s) of author(s)
· phone number
· contact e-mail address
Papers submitted must meet the following minimum style requirements:
· 15–25 single-spaced pages (normally 5000–8000 words) with 1”
margins (size 8.5 x 11" paper); additional pages may be used for
references, tables, and figures
· size 12 font, Times New Roman or Doulos SIL (if another font
is necessary for linguistic symbols, please contact the editors prior
to submitting your paper)
· title should appear at the top of the first page, but in
order to maintain anonymity in the review process, the author's name
must not appear anywhere in the document. Please include this
information in the body of the email.
· use footnotes, not endnotes
· use section headings
· examples must be numbered, and if data from a language other
than English are presented, it should be accompanied by
interlinearized glosses and a free translation.
· include abstract (maximum 150 words)
· submit two copies:
· one copy in Word or LaTeX. If you use Word, please send
only .doc files, not .docx files; if you use LaTeX, please contact
rls at rice.edu before submitting your paper.
· In addtion to the Word or LaTeX submission, you must send a
PDF version so we can preview formatting and fonts.
Questions regarding the submissions process or style requirements may
be addressed to the editorial board at rls at rice.edu.
