How to contribute to the working papers in Linguistics

For past issues of Working Papers in Linguistics, please see our archives.


More permanent archiving: We are pleased to formally announce that The Ohio State University (OSU) has agreed to archive digital versions of the OSU Working Papers in Linguistics through the university's highly acclaimed Knowledge Bank. The Knowledge Bank (http://kb.osu.edu) is OSU's digital institutional repository. Inclusion in the Knowledge Bank means that past articles from the very first volume on will be searchable (e.g. by Google) and available via the Internet. Other benefits of this arrangement include long-term preservation in a cutting edge, professionally managed repository, a worldwide audience, immediate distribution of research, a long-term stable URL that can be used in citation, and an increased web presence.

We welcome feedback from any author (or rights holder) whose work appeared in the OSU WPL and who has any questions or concerns about the digitization process and/or inclusion in the Knowledge Bank. Please contact the OSU WPL committee (osuwpl@osu.edu) by July 31, 2016.
