About the Journal

Focus and Scope

This periodical publication contains articles developed from work presented at the annual Semantics and Linguistic Theory (SALT) conference, North America's foremost conference devoted to natural language semantics with relevance to linguistic theory. Its audience and contributors are primarily linguists, but it is also of interest to and enjoys contributions from researchers in such allied fields as philosophy, cognitive science, and computer science.

Peer Review Process

As with many other proceedings publications in general and theoretical linguistics, abstracts for the conference presentation version of articles undergo rigorous double-blind peer review, using an online review procedure on a different platform than this one. The full article versions are submitted on this platform or added here by the editorial team after the conference and are checked for suitability by them, without further peer review.

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge. The proceedings are published by the digital publishing platform of the Linguistic Society of America (LSA). They are edited by the Department of Linguistics at Cornell University.
