New Journal of Corpora and Discourse Studies announced

Cardiff University Press has announced the forthcoming publication of the
Journal of Corpora and Discourse Studies (JCaDS), a new peer-reviewed,
open-access journal dedicated to the computer-assisted study of language in
use as a vehicle of communication. Edited by an international team of
scholars led by Professor Alan Partington of the University of Bologna
(Italy), JCaDS breaks new ground as the first linguistics journal to fully
embrace the principles of open science, offering not only open access to the
journal's articles but also open data that can be reanalysed and reused. In
addition to original empirical research, JCaDS will publish reviews of
books, software tools and corpora. Call for contributions

JCaDS would like to invite contributions for its first issue, due to appear
in summer 2018. The journal will consider original research articles using
corpus techniques for the systematic examination of naturally-occurring
language in specific settings and contexts.

Aspects and areas of interest include but are not limited to applied
linguistics; pragmatics; psycholinguistics; semantics; sociolinguistics;
stylistics; translation; cohesion; conversation; evaluation; lexical
priming; lexicogrammar; politeness; (cross-)cultural studies; discourse
approaches to the study of business and organisations, education,
healthcare, history, law, the media, politics, the professions, and
sexuality and gender; and the digital humanities and social sciences. We
welcome work from any disciplinary standpoint.

The language of publication is English, but we welcome submissions working
on any language. Original manuscripts should be no longer than 9,000 words.
For further guidance please visit
Authors need to register with the journal prior to submitting their
manuscript online.

JCaDS also invites reviews of books, corpus software tools and corpora.
Please contact the book review editor, Sylvia Jaworska <

The Journal of Corpora and Discourse Studies is a twice-yearly,
peer-reviewed, online, open-access journal publishing corpus-assisted
research into discourse, defined as language in use as a vehicle of
communication. JCaDS is pluridisciplinary: we welcome studies from all
areas of the humanities and social sciences that incorporate corpus
techniques in investigating how spoken and written language is used and how
meanings are created and explored.

JCaDS is published by Cardiff University Press in collaboration with
leading open-access publisher Ubiquity Press.
