New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : LANGUAGE, INTERACTION AND ACQUISITION

2950663799_faf7400738_b

From the John Benjamins website for the journal:

LIA is a bilingual English-French journal that publishes original theoretical and empirical research of high scientific quality at the forefront of current debates concerning language acquisition. It covers all facets of language acquisition among different types of learners and in diverse learning situations, with particular attention to oral speech and/or to signed languages. Topics include the acquisition of one or more foreign languages, of one or more first languages, and of sign languages, as well as learners’ use of gestures during speech; the relationship between language and cognition during acquisition; bilingualism and situations of linguistic contact – for example pidginisation and creolisation. The bilingual nature of LIA aims at reaching readership in a wide international community, while simultaneously continuing to attract intellectual and linguistic resources stemming from multiple scientific traditions in Europe, thereby remaining faithful to its original French anchoring. LIA is the direct descendant of the French-speaking journal AILE.

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 5 (2014) to present.

University of Chicago and University of California journals transfers

From January 2016, the University of Chicago and University of California journals have transferred from the JSTOR Current Scholarship Programme to their own publishing platforms.

Volumes/issues published up to the end of 2015 remain available on the JSTOR CSP platform and re-directs are in place from JSTOR to the Chicago and California platforms for users going to JSTOR.  The ejournals@cambridge A-Z has been updated to reflect the transfers and content ranges.

Volumes/issues published via the JSTOR CSP platform to which Cambridge should have access from historic entitlements are also available on the Chicago and California platforms so we have taken the approach, to avoid unnecessary duplication of links for overlapping years, of displaying only the “archival” access available from JSTOR archive subscriptions (JSTOR Arts & Sciences Collections) and the access available from the Chicago and California platforms.

If you have any queries about these transfers please write to ejournals@lib.cam.ac.uk.  Thank you.
