Journal for Language Technology and Computational Linguistics


The Journal for Language Technology and Computational Linguistics offers a publication platform for all researchers working in the field of computational linguistics and language technology. The following list of topics gives a partial overview of typical research fields relevant to researchers in the GSCL community:
  • Parsing (theory and technology)
  • Computational morphology
  • Text technology (markup languages, text mining)
  • Machine translation and machine aided translation
  • Linguistic approaches to the Semantic Web and ontology engineering
  • Hypermedia (linguistic issues in multimedia and hypermedia systems, electronic publishing and digital libraries)
  • Computational lexicography
  • Corpus linguistics
  • Speech based systems and their applications
  • Language technology applications in information retrieval, knowledge management and related areas
  • Language technology in diachronic and comparative linguistics
  • Issues in curriculum development for computational linguistics
The publication policy focuses on original research papers and book reviews while short term issues like conference announcements or calls for papers are published via the website of the GSCL (http://www.gscl.org) external link.

Issues of the Journal for Language Technology and Computational Linguistics may have a specific thematic focus - recent thematically specified issues include a volume on the development of GermaNet, the German WordNet-oriented activity, as well as a volume on text mining. Nevertheless, the journal is basically open for regular submissions from the fields mentioned above. All papers submitted to the Journal for Language Technology and Computational Linguistics are subjected to a blind peer review process and are reviewed by at least two members of the editorial board.

The editorial board consists of researchers from academia and the language technology industry as well as the chairpersons of the GSCL's special interest groups.
