JSEALS Submission Guidelines

Submissions to JSEALS may be made at any time of year.  Papers will go into the queue for review, and will be published in the first scheduled issue after being formally accepted.
Click here for details on the new JSEALS site.
Please submit minimally formatted .DOC and PDF versions of your papers directly via email to Mark Alves mark.alves AT montgomerycollege.edu, Paul Sidwell paulsidwell AT yahoo.com, or Nathan Hill nh36 AT soas.ac.uk

All submissions must include an abstract (approximately 100 words) and keywords (we recommend providing 3 words).  As a finding aid, one or more ISO 639-3 language codes and/or latitude/longitude points may also be provided.

Submissions should follow the recommendations of The Generic Style Rules for Linguistics, which "attempt a balance between conventionality, functionality, and simplicity," and are available in full as GenericStyleRules.pdf.

To prepare a paper for submission, read the information in the template file under "Submissions Guidelines" on the menu on the left side of this screen

In principle there is no length requirement, but papers of between 10 and 20 pages are preferred.


JSEALS book reviews
JSEALS has begun receiving unsolicited books for review.  Members may request books (see also the SEALS Facebook page).  Reviews should be submitted within 3 months, at minimum of 1000 words for regular books, and 2000 words for large books, with no upper limit.  Reviews are be expected to be more than long book notices, and offer some critical insight into the work.  Unsolicited reviews are also welcome, as long as the books relate to our area of interest.


The JSEALS website is maintained by the Center for Research in Computational Linguistics.  Please send requests for additions, corrections, or information to doug.cooper.thailand at gmail.com.  Editorial queries should be directed to paulsidwell at yahoo.com
