Dear Friends and Colleagues,
I apologize for piggy-backing onto Kristine's message, but this seems like
a good opportunity to throw out an appeal on behalf of the Endangered
Alphabets Project. For five years I have been wanting to carve a short
piece of text in Newari using the Ranjana or Lantsa script, but I haven't
been able to find a scholar who can write Newari in this traditional
script. If this message reaches you and you have such skills, I'd be
eternally grateful if you would get in touch with me, either through the
endangeredalphabets.com website or by email at brookes at champlain.edu.

> Dear Community of Scholars:
> As editor of *Himalayan Linguistics
> <http://escholarship.org/uc/himalayanlinguistics>*, the day has fimally
> come when I am able to warmly welcome you to our new digital home, hosted
> by the University of California's eScholarship platform. eScholarship
> provides Open-Access scholarly publishing services, and will allow our
> journal to continue to grow and flourish into the future. We welcome you by
> way of issue 13.2 (2014), with four articles and one book review (there was
> no 13.1 published).
> In many ways, *Himalayan Linguistics
> <http://escholarship.org/uc/himalayanlinguistics>* will remain the same,
> high-quality venue that it has always been since its launch by Carol
> Genetti, Tej Ratna Kansakar and Michael Noonan in 2004. It will remain an
> online peer-reviewed journal specializing in languages of the Himalayan
> region. You will still be able to access articles, book reviews, book
> notices and field reports, and also grammars, dictionaries, and text
> collections as free-standing publications Also, as always, *HL* will
> remain free, with no subscription fee. Another thing that will remain the
> same about *HL* is its semi-annual publication (June and December). And,
> as begun in 2013, each issue of *HL* will continue to be published under
> a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives (*CC BY-NC-ND*
> <http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0/>) License. And,
> because *HL* is now housed with eScholarship, the contributions will
> enjoy more comprehensive indexing in library databases worldwide. As an
> additional benefit, because *HL *will now be permanently archived as part
> of the University of California digital library, we will have the security
> of long-term digital housing and storage.
> But you will notice a few new things about *Himalayan Linguistics
> <http://escholarship.org/uc/himalayanlinguistics>,* beginning with this
> issue 13.2. First, you may use the "Select Issue" bar at the top of the
> screen to scroll through current and back issues. Second, because all book
> reviews published before 2008 (before *HL* changed to its current
> semi-annual publication schedule in 2010) have issue numbers that are
> potentially in conflict with later issues, they have been assembled into a
> special issue: 1:2. Third, you may notice that the "Archives & Field
> Reports
> <http://escholarship.org/uc/search?entity=himalayanlinguistics;volume=0;issue=1>"
> section is accessible via a link on the side box of the home screen.
> Fourth, periodic messages and updates from the editor may be found at the "News
> from the Editor
> <http://escholarship.org/uc/search?entity=himalayanlinguistics;view=news>"
> link.
> Perhaps the biggest change to *Himalayan Linguistics
> <http://escholarship.org/uc/himalayanlinguistics>* will be the way in
> which new contributions are submitted for review and editing. All authors
> are requested to submit their articles or other contributions by using the "Submit
> Article for this Journal
> <https://submit.escholarship.org/ojs/index.php/himalayanlinguistics/author>"
> button on the left side of the screen. There, you will be able to create a
> personal account and provide your author (and co-author) and contact
> information. The editorial board will assign peer-reviewers and manage the
> revision and formatting process entirely through this portal. This will
> eliminate previous problems with lost emails, font and formatting issues,
> and file upload/download glitches, for example.
> As a final note, I wish to thank the authors of this current issue for
> working patiently with us as we prepared this "inaugural" issue 13.2 on the
> eScholarship platform. We will continue to make the submission,
> peer-review, and revision/formatting/proofs process as simple and
> user-friendly as possible.
> On behalf of the editorial board, I invite you to explore *Himalayan
> Linguistics <http://escholarship.org/uc/himalayanlinguistics>* in its new
> home, and to consider submitting to the journal. If you have any questions,
> please feel free to contact me directly (khildeb at siue.edu).
