We are pleased to announce a new linguistics journal:

         Languages of the Caucasus

an open-source, free, peer-reviewed electronic journal that will publish
high-quality linguistic research on languages of the Caucasus.

Submissions are welcome beginning Jan. 15.  See  the journal website:


(The website is in near-final form now.  Check back for the final version
before submitting.)

The first issue (1.1) will be a memorial volume for Aleksandr Kibrik and
Sandro Kodzasov, founders of an illustrious tradition of fieldwork and
analysis of languages of the Caucasus and intellectual inspiration to
Caucasianists and typologists everywhere.

We will use a volume and issue number system for ease of bibliographical
reference, but papers will be published as soon as they are accepted and
received in final form.  Articles for the memorial issue can be submitted
at any time from Jan. 15 to about mid-November 2015 (leaving time for
review, acceptance, and editing during 2015).  Articles not for the
memorial issue will appear in Vol. 1.2 if received in time for review and
acceptance during 2015.  (That is, the memorial and plain issues of Vol. 1
will run simultaneously.)

Of course, if you have first-rate typological work dealing with languages
of the Caucasus, you want to submit it to Linguistic Typology.  We're not
in competition.    : )

The journal is published by eScholarship, an open access publishing
platform within the California Digital Library initiative (
http://www.cdlib.org/ ).
