ACL 2002 Report: BOOK REVIEWS PUBLISHED
Book Review Editor's report
In 2001, we continued to publish about five book reviews plus a
couple of brief notices in each issue of Computational Linguistics.
This number will certainly drop in 2002-03, as the number of books
published in computational linguistics and closely related areas has
dropped noticeably over the last year.
Most reviews are published in a timely manner -- that is, within 12
months of receipt of the book. This allows six months for the
reviewer (some take less) and five months for journal production.
I am continuing to be fairly strict in deciding if a book is to be
reviewed, but try to include all books that are in "core"
computational linguistics, as well as a variety of books from
adjacent and overlapping disciplines that are likely to be useful in
CL. We do not review technical reports, doctoral theses, conference
proceedings, or workshop proceedings, except if revised for
publication as a book by a recognized publisher.
I am indebted to Nadia Talent for long hours of reading out loud with
me to check the galleys.
