Our 2015 Annual Meeting featured a Special Session on the Publishing Process, with presentations from linguistics journal editors on topics including:

  • "From thesis (or term paper) to submission", Brian Joseph (former Editor, Language; Editor, Journal of Greek Linguistics)
  • "The review process", Joseph Salmons (Editor, Diachronica)
  • "Revise & Resubmit", Jeffrey Lidz (Editor, Language Acquisition)

The slides from this session are now available on the website of the Committee of Editors of Linguistics Journals (celxj.org).

CELxJ also conducted a survey of 21 linguistics journal editors to ask questions on their review process, reviewing guidelines, their typical timeline for reviewing papers, etc. The results of this survey have also been posted online.
