The editorial policies are the responsibility of the Editor(s)-in-Chief and the Editorial Board under the general authority of the Publications Committee and the Council.
- About Copyrights
As a condition of publication, all authors must transfer copyright to the Institute for the Study of Language and Information. Manuscripts submitted under multiple authorship are reviewed on the assumption that all listed authors concur in the submission, and that the final version of the manuscript has been seen and approved by them.
- Process for reviewing submitted manuscripts
All manuscripts submitted to the journal are critically reviewed. It is the responsibility of the Editor(s)-in-Chief and the Editorial Board to determine their suitability for the publication. After receipt of a manuscript by the Editor(s), it is sent to two members of the Editorial Board. Each of the Board members then makes a definitive recommendation for acceptance without change, acceptance after minor revision, reevaluate after major revision, or rejection based on the scientific merit and technical quality of the studies reported. Referees may be consulted when additional expertise is required; however, decisions on manuscripts are often made on the basis of two reviews.
