Thematic issues invited

Since volume 43(1) (August 2007), PSiCL has been published not only in hard copy but also online. We started online publication in co-operation with Versita Ltd, then the exclusive partner for Central and Eastern Europe of MetaPress, a partner of Springer, and later (since 2012) part of De Gruyter. Today, we are published directly by De Gruyter.

With the increase in publication frequency to four issues per year in 2008, we decided that, in addition to general volumes, we would have space for at least one thematic issue per year.

The first two of these issues were 45(1), devoted to Natural Phonology and edited by Katarzyna Dziubalska-Kołaczyk, and 45(2), devoted to Clinical Linguistics and guest-edited by Monika Połczyńska, Yishai Tobin and Shimon Sapir.

Vol. 47(1), the first to be published directly by De Gruyter, contains articles from the 6th International Symposium on the Acquisition of Second Language Speech (New Sounds 2010), and was guest-edited by Magdalena Wrembel, Małgorzata Kul and Katarzyna Dziubalska-Kołaczyk. The first four papers of vol. 47(2), guest-edited by Wolfgang Dressler, form a thematic whole, the topic being complexity in Natural Linguistics. Vol. 47(4) is a thematic issue on contrastive word formation, guest-edited by Jesús Fernández-Domínguez, Marie-Aude Lefer, and Vincent Renner. Vol. 48(1) on narratives in context, is guest-edited by Agnieszka Kiełkiewicz-Janowiak and Joanna Pawelczyk. Vol. 49(3) is a thematic issue on historical sociolinguistics and pragmatics, guest-edited by Matylda Włodarczyk. Sylwia Wojciechowska and Konrad Juszczyk guest-edited vol. 50(1) on metaphor, metonymy and emotions. Vol. 50(2), a special issue on linguistic complexity, was edited by Katarzyna Dziubalska-Kołaczyk. Issue 52(2), devoted to language processing in translation, collects papers from a session at the 45th Poznań Linguistic Meeting and is guest-edited by Bogusława Whyatt. Issue 52(4) , with Elena Babatsouli as the guest editor, focussed on monolingual and bilingual speech acquisition. Finally, vol. 53(1), guest-edited by Ewa Tomczak and Dorota Jaworska-Pasterska, was titled "Linguistic takes on the mind and brain: Cognitive, neuro- and psycholinguistic perspectives".
