JLC publishes two series:

The THEMA series is a yearly publication which focuses on a specific topic. Each issue
has an Editor who makes decisions in agreement with the editors of JLC.

Proposals for contributions should be submitted by email to nicolai@unice.fr (email
subject : "Contribution.JLC.Thema")

The VARIA series considers proposals for contributions which are concerned with the
aims of JLC as long as they have not been already studied in an issue of the Thema
series.

Proposals for contributions should be submitted by email to nicolai@unice.fr and
Henning.Schreiber@uni-hamburg.de (email subject : "Contribution.JLC.Varia")

                                                Purpose

The fact of language “contact” and its impact on the dynamics of language are recognized today.
Questions relating to this topic no longer derive from marginal studies nor from the treatment of
“special cases": whether the issue is to understand the evolution of languages, their structural
and material transformations, or simply to take account of their ordinary use, language contact is
omnipresent.

    We would like JLC to focus on the study of language contact, language use and language
change in accordance with a view of language contact whereby both empirical data (the precise
description of languages and how they are used) and the resulting theoretical elaborations
(hence the statement and analysis of new problems) become the primary engines for advancing
our understanding of the nature of language. And this will involve associating linguistic,
anthropological, historical, and cognitive factors. We believe such an approach could make a
major new contribution to understanding language change at a time when there is a notable
increase of interest and activity in this field.

JLC should provide a forum for discussion of general perspectives and should accept
contributions of any orientation on the principle that reasoned argumentation will enrich our
understanding of language contact.

                                                 Change of state

    The third VARIA volume of the Journal of Language Contact is herewith published and the third
THEMA issue shall appear by end of 2010. The already published volumes have been well recognized in the
academic field of Language Contact studies and the international academic affiliations of the contributors, the
thematic richness of the articles and the scientific quality may be interpreted as a confirmation of the journals
success. JLC is in the fore in its domain on an international level and has received international attention.
However, despite its recognition it received not enough publishing support.
    The attention of publishing house Brill in Leiden has, as a consequence of its international recognition,
been attracted to the development of the journal. BRILL has contacted the editors and proposed to continue
the publication and diffusion of the Journal of Language Contact one year ago. After examination of the offer and
one year of negotiations the editors have finally accepted because the engagement and experience of BRILL
will guarantee the continuity of the journal and provide the necessary publishing support, hosting and
promotion—while the scientific independence will be left untouched. Although the future volumes of the
journal will no longer be open access, a moderate pricing of has been agreed on.

This will change:

1) One volume with two issues of JLC will appear per year as before. A distinction with the current practice is
   that most issues will be regular issues, but occasionally a thematic issue will be published which will be
   announced in advance. The number of pages will remain 350 pp. per year.

2) Starting from volume 4, JLC will be published online and in print, distributed under the terms of
   subscription of BRILL.

3) The mode of publication of the actual issues VARIA 3 and THEMA 3 (volume 3) is and will be still open
   access. All articles can be downloaded without charge as before.

4) All issues and articles up to volume 3 will remain open access and can be downloaded without charge as
   before. They will be however accessible under the new future domain and are hosted then on the new
   website of the journal at BRILL.

                                                                             Robert Nicolaï

VIII              Journal of Language Contact. Evolution of languages, contact and discourse

                                  INFORMATION EDITORIALE

                                            Changement de statut

    Journal of Language Contact publie aujourd’hui son troisième numéro VARIA et publiera, en principe
avant la fin de l’année, son troisième numéro THEMA. Les précédents numéros ne sont pas passés inaperçus
dans le champ académique concerné par l’étude des contacts de langues comme l’atteste la répartition
internationale des attaches universitaires de ses contributeurs, la diversité de ses contributions publiées et leur
qualité scientifique. JLC a ainsi atteint une audience internationale et, sans doute, un statut de premier plan
dans un domaine qui, en dépit de sa richesse et de son importance théorique de plus en plus reconnue, ne
possédait pas de support d’édition périodique qui lui soit dédié.
    Conséquence probable de ce développement : les Editions Brill de Leiden, attentives à l’évolution de
l’édition académique, nous ont contacté et nous ont proposé de prendre à leur compte l’édition et la diffusion
de Journal of Language Contact. Après réflexion, analyse de leur proposition et suite à une négociation qui s’est
poursuivie tout au long d’une année, nous avons décidé d’accepter leur offre parce que cette négociation nous
a donné des garanties sur les deux points essentiels que sont notre indépendance scientifique et le prix de
départ des abonnements individuels ; ensuite, parce que les Editions Brill, qui s’engagent dès lors à assurer la
fabrication, la diffusion et la promotion de Journal of Language Contact, nous donnent une garantie de diffusion
internationale fondée sur la qualité de leur infrastructure éditoriale et une meilleure assurance de pérennité.

Ce que cela change :

1) Journal of Language Contact publiera désormais un volume annuel divisé en deux numéros comme par le
   passé, mais la distinction VARIA et THEMA ne sera plus rigide : ainsi, tous les numéros seront « VARIA »
   par défaut mais des numéros THEMA pourront être publiés lorsqu’ils seront effectivement prêts. Le
   nombre des pages chaque volume sera d’environ 350 pp.

2) Dès le volume 4, Journal of Language Contact sera disponible par abonnement, en version on-line et en
   version imprimée selon les modalités propres aux Editions BRILL

3) Ce numéro VARIA 3 de Journal of Language Contact et le numéro THEMA 3 actuellement en préparation
   sont les derniers numéros diffusés dans la modalité « open-access » et ils sont téléchargeables gratuitement
   comme les numéros précédents.

4) Toutefois, le téléchargement des trois premiers volumes de la revue continuera à être libre et gratuit sur le
   site de la revue, à l’adresse des Editions BRILL.

                                                                             Robert Nicolaï
