SLS accepts submissions of original research articles from the students and faculty of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and outside authors by invitation. No open call for papers is issued. SLS may occasionally publish the proceedings of conferences and workshops in linguistics held at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
