Register Studies, a new interdisciplinary journal from John Benjamins, is now accepting submissions. In recent years, there has been a surge of empirical research focused on registers (i.e. language varieties defined by a situation of use) from many diverse perspectives and across many languages. Register Studies is the first refereed journal devoted to the publication of empirical, methodological, and theoretical research on register and its relationship to all aspects of language use, variation, change, and learning. This journal provides a forum for the publication of high-quality studies related to:

• spoken or written registers in any language or time period;
• language variation across registers and detailed analyses of single registers;
• diachronic linguistic change within or across registers;
• language for specific purposes and English for academic purposes;
• methodological approaches to the study of register;
• text selection and corpus design issues for register studies;
• theoretical models for understanding register;
• the application of register analysis in language learning, teaching, and assessment.

Register Studies is highly interdisciplinary, welcoming scholarship on register from areas such as corpus linguistics, discourse analysis, sociolinguistics, applied linguistics, Systemic Functional Linguistics, language teaching, and computational linguistics. Research on English-language registers, analyses of registers in languages other than English, and cross-linguistic comparisons of registers are welcome. Register Studies regularly publishes reviews of books, corpora, and research tools focused on register research. All contributions undergo double-blind peer review.

We welcome the submission of manuscripts from any of the aforementioned areas. The first issue of Register Studies is scheduled for publication in Spring 2019.
