We are happy to announce the launch of a new international journal,
*Dialogue and Discourse*
*Dialogue and Discourse* reflects the surge of interest in the analysis of language `beyond the single sentence', in discourse (i.e., text, monologue) and dialogue, from a formal, computational, or experimental perspective, as reflected in the wide range of work presented at the SEMDIAL and SIGDIAL conferences (http://www.illc.uva.nl/semdial/ ; http://www.sigdial.org/ ) and various other forums. *Dialogue and Discourse* will be the first journal devoted to a wide dissemination of such work.
Our aim is to publish * the best research in the area of dialogue and discourse (as
specified in our Aims and Scope,
http://www.dialogue-and-discourse.org/aims.html ) * in a timely fashion (we are committed to achieving a mean time
between submission and decision of 3 months) * open to interested readers everywhere (open access, online).
We are part of the ejournal initiative of the Linguistic Society of America ( http://elanguage.net/home.php ).
Articles will be published online as soon as they have been accepted. Each year, a (hardcopy) volume, collecting all articles of the year will be published by CSLI Publications, Stanford.
The journal can be found in the following two sites, each of which provides immediate access to a submission portal and to available articles: * http://elanguage.net/journals/index.php/dad/index * http://www.dialogue-and-discourse.org
As with any journal, the two most important resources are its contributors and its readers. The journal is open for submissions and we urge you to consider submitting your work on any topic relevant to Dialogue and Discourse. Our first articles should start appearing within the next two months.
