Linguistica ONLINE has met the conditions of and has signed cooperation
with the WebArchiv project whose purpose
is to collect Czech online-born documents with a research value.
Aim & Purpose
The journal's porpose (and the ultimate impulse for starting it) is
twofold. First, there was a desire to collect linguistically oriented
papers and publish them for free on the Internet. We feel that the
Internet is an excellent medium for sharing people's thoughts,
opinions and discoveries, and that it would be a serious drawback not
to take advantage of it. There is probably no other medium to which
so many people from multiple nations have access at one instant.
Secondly, there was a wish to promote the work of the members of
the Department of Linguistics and Baltic Language of Masaryk University,
Brno. The Department supports this journal. We want promote everybody's
interesting papers, that is, papers dealing with linguistics.
Our aim to is collect as many as possible papers, republish them and make
them available for students, scholars or other interested people.
We feel this is a good way to support and enrich linguistic
research. We hope we will be able to publish more and more papers.
We will very much welcome your help. If you want to publish or republish
your paper in Linguistica ONLINE, go to the

Issues of Linguistica ONLINE
Most papers published in Linguistica ONLINE are and will be gathered
into issues. Beginning with January 2006, the issues are hoped to be published twice a year,
depanding on the number of available papers. It is possible there will appear
special issues and/or separately published papers in the meantime.
An issue of Linguistica ONLINE will mostly function as a bundle of papers.
Sometimes an issue contains thematically related papers or papers by one
author. Although it is possible to view and download an issue in one file (including
Title pages, Foreword and Contents), every paper is published separately. It has its own
file, own reference (i.e. a unique name of the file and web address) and own pagination.
As such, it exists independently of the issue. Bundling papers into issues
is mostly for the sake of convenience.
