Now accepting Working Papers submissions for Spring 2024

January 1, 2024

Deadline extension: submissions now due February 15, 2024

Do you have a piece of research that you would like to publish? Working Papers in the Language Sciences at the University of Rochester is currently accepting submissions for Volume 10 to be published in Spring 2024. Undergraduates, graduates, and faculty from the University of Rochester can submit term papers, qualifying papers, conference presentations, or otherwise unpublished research in the language sciences for publication in our very own departmental working papers journal.

Publishing in working papers is a chance for researchers to share work that is in progress, or that is not yet ready for submission to a full-fledged journal. Just like with a regular journal, papers submitted to WPLS:UR are reviewed, and if accepted, go through the revision and editing process. For students, this is a good opportunity to get early career experience with the publication of your research.

The deadline for submissions is January 31, 2024 (extended to February 15, 2024). For submission details and any other questions, please contact J.C. Wamsley at
