USC Working Papers call for papers
The call for papers for Volume 6 of the USC Working Papers in Linguistics is out! See below for information from graduate student editors Darby Garchek and Metehan Oğuz:
We are happy to announce again that we are now accepting submissions for our annual departmental journal, USC Working Papers in Linguistics! For this year’s volume, we will be accepting paper submissions until the deadline, May 15th, 2023.
For this year’s volume, we are looking for submissions from both students and faculty that are completed projects which are close to being ready to send to journals. This includes things like screening project papers, manuscripts, and conference presentations for conferences without proceedings. If you have a question about whether something should be submitted, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us!
Please note that the publications in this journal are considered a work-in-progress, and publication in this journal does not preclude publication of the same work in a different journal. The idea behind these submissions is to provide opportunities for students and faculty to get smaller publications on their way to more outward-facing journal publications. This allows those who submit to receive more feedback from other members of the department, and also acquire more publications for their CVs/websites/etc. It also allows other linguistics departments to see what sort of work we are producing at USC.
You can find the call for papers with more information on submission requirements on our website. Submissions should be sent to email@example.com. You can also find the style sheet for submissions attached to this email. We are accepting both LaTeX and word submission this year.
We look forward to your submissions! Please feel free to email us with any questions you might have!Darby & Mete
