Welcome to the home page of the Journal of Formal, Computational &
I hope you will find the journal useful.
When starting a new journal the primary problem is to define its place
within the variety of existing publications. One should establish the direction
and purpose for the journal to make it a valuable and effective mean for
the development of that branch of science.
Here we state the aims of the "Web Journal of Formal, Computational
& Cognitive Linguistics" as the following:
- To provide immediate publication of research results. This can be easily
achieved using electronic media. A preprint in HTML format, sent by e-mail,
would become available to the scientific community next day.
- To create and keep a large archive of preprints. The experience of
electronic archives of preprints in physics shows growing popularity of
such archives. The archive will include any material received without reviewing.
Authors remain responsible for the content of their preprints. The editorial
board holds the right to exclude a paper that is definitely outside the
scope of the journal.
- To organize an interdisciplinary discussion about language. Language
is studied not only by linguists but also by mathematicians, computer scientists,
psychologists, etc. One could expect a interdisciplinary approach to be
most effective in investigation of the complex phenomenon of language.
Meanwhile, linguists are not always sufficiently acquainted with the possibilities
of modern computers or achievements in cognitive science and neuroscience.
The journal will encourage interdisciplinary research papers.
- To contribute to the integration of scientists from post-soviet countries
into the world scientific community. The rapid development of the Internet
opens an opportunity for more closer cooperation among scientists all over
the world. We would like to use this opportunity as much as possible.
- To stimulate development in formal, computer and cognitive linguistics.
We would like to collaborate with everyone who is interested in language
