Proposals of Special Issues

TSLP special issues are an important mechanism for presenting a focused collection of significant work from areas of high innovation and activity to the speech and language community. TSLP considers only "open call" special issues; that is, special issues that are announced world-wide to all relevant scholars, that consider submissions from anyone, and that review submissions as rigorously as non-special issue submissions. TSLP does not consider special issue projects that are workshop proceedings or that otherwise gather the work of a group of authors designated in advance.

Proposals for special issues should be submitted to the Editor-in-Chief. Proposals include 6 components that should be attached to an email as PDF files:

  • Brief statement of the scope and focus of the special issue (less than 100 words);
  • Statement of why it is opportune to produce the special issue now (less than 200 words);
  • Statement of why the proposers are the right people to edit this special issue;
  • List of key potential submitters to/authors for the proposed special issue;
  • The "call for papers" that will be published and distributed world-wide to solicit papers for the special issue - this component should succinctly describe the technical focus of the special issue (less than 1000 words);
  • Schedule and plan for the special issue (for example, stating where and when the "call for papers" will be distributed, whether authors will first submit abstracts, etc.)
