History

Pacific Linguistics was established in 1963 through an initial grant from the Hunter Douglas Fund.
The earliest books were published in the name of the Linguistic Circle of Canberra. The founding editor was Professor Stephen A. Wurm, who sadly passed away late in 2001.

From 1963 until 1999 Pacific Linguistics published four series:

  • Series A: Occasional Papers; collections of shorter papers, usually on a single topic or area
  • Series B: Monographs of intermediate length.
  • Series C: Books; publications of greater length, especially reference books such as dictionaries and grammars, and conference proceedings.
  • Series D: Special Publications; including archival materials, pedagogical works, maps, audiovisual productions, and materials that do not fit into the other series.

From the beginning of 2000, only a single series was been published, beginning with Pacific Linguistics 501. We are sometimes asked why we abandoned the four series. There were a number of reasons. Series A had long been problematic, as a volume could not be published until enough papers about languages of the relevant area/family were available to fill it, and this sometimes took years, to the annoyance of authors whose papers had already been accepted for publication. Series A was accordingly terminated. The borderline between Series B and C had always been hazy, and Series D simply included anything that didn’t fit into Series A, B and C. An added problem which readers complained of was that some libraries treated our series as journals and some would not allow them to leave the library, whereas most of our publications are properly catalogued as books, and we were keen to emphasise that our publications are books.

Pacific Linguistics

Welcome to the temporary website of Pacific Linguistics!

On this website you will find all information about Asia-Pacific Linguistics, our series of E-Journals and Monographs . We can also look through our Catalogue.

You also got access to the Pacific Linguistics backlist archives, prepared as a public service by CRCL (Bangkok) with the cooperation of Asia-Pacific Linguistics. At present, 587 volumes have been indexed, and 512 volumes are on line.

A series: volumes 1 (1963) through 92 (1998)
B series: volumes 1 (1963) through 115 (1999)
C series: volumes 1 (1965) through 156 (1999)
D series: volumes 1 (1964) through 94 (1999).

PL series: volumes 501 (2000) through 570 (2005) are on line, volumes 571 through 636 (2011) are underway.

All our publications currently in print are also listed in this PDF.

All Out-of-print-publications are also available on request.


PDF versions of works in this archive may be freely downloaded for research purposes. If you wish to purchase print version of works still in print, you can continue to do so in the normal way. Asia-Pacific Linguistics (A-PL) provides a broad platform for content delivery in linguistics with emphasis on open access; we offer textbooks and language learning materials for sale, other materials such as journals, data collections, shorter grammars and reference works, lexicons, facimile editions and so forth published and distributed free of charge in electronic format (typically PDF). A-PL publications all carry ISSN/ISBN numbers, are subject to peer review where appropriate, and offer the tremendous advantages of electronic distribution and open access.

The Pacific Linguistics monograph series we have published continuously since 1963 is now published by De Gruyter Mouton in Berlin, volumes numbered 637 onward. The DGM series focuses primarily on linguistic descriptions, dictionaries and high quality reference materials for the languages of the Pacific, Australia and Asia to be sold in both hard and soft-copy.

Both A-PL publications and the DGM series are managed out of the Department of Linguistics (School of Culture, History & Language) at the ANU, under the one editorial board and Managing Editor, ensuring the continuation of high academic standards.

For submissions to both Pacific Linguistics and Asia-Pacific Linguistics series, please contact the Managing Editor.
