eLanguage, the LSA’s digital publishing platform, discontinued at the end of 2013, offers an archive of a variety of scholarly linguistics research. This content included journals, book notices and proceedings of several major Linguistics conferences in the U.S. Please see the information and links below to view archived content and to link to current content.
The archive of selected eLanguage co-journals includes those that have been discontinued, and those that are no longer affiliated with the LSA, but continue to publish under other platforms. The archive does not include content published in Semantics and Pragmatics, an original co-journal of eLanguage, because it continues active publication under the auspices of the LSA.

The eLanguage platform also encompassed conference proceedings for various meetings in linguistics. These proceedings all continue publication under the auspices of the LSA.

More about eLanguage
The goal of the eLanguage Project was to effectively utilize modern, web-based publishing technologies in order to provide researchers in the the academic discipline of Linguistics with a platform for the management of peer-reviewed, open-access electronic journals. E-journals play an important role in academic publishing as the global exchange of information and knowledge moves increasingly from paper to new, digital environments. Because digital publications are under few limitations in terms of breadth and have unprecedented advantages in terms of speed and ubiquity, as well as novel possibilites of integrating databases and multimedia, they have the potential to cover a range of disciplinary sub-fields which can hardly be treated with the same degree of detail while under the limitations imposed by paper-based modes of publishing.
With eLanguage the LSA enabled researchers to establish their own "co-journals" which were accessible both individually and in an aggregated form on eLanguage.net. Once a proposal for a new co-journal was approved by the editorial board, the journals managers were given access to eLanguage's internal publication tools, enabling them to review, copy-edit and publish articles relevant to the focus area of their journal. To ensure the highest possible academic standards, articles were subjected to a double-blind review process before publication. While co-journals were accessible through the eLanguage.net main page they remained fully independent and were managed by their respective editors, with additional support (especially regarding technical issues) provided by the eLanguage team. All content appearing in eLanguage, both on the main page and in the co-journals, was fully accessible to all readers, with no access restrictions whatsoever.
