A student-run working papers journal, Colorado Research in Linguistics (CRIL) has been published at the University of Colorado Boulder since 1971. Its purpose is to provide an outlet for new findings and original works by both students and faculty in the Department of Linguistics and allied CU departments. Today's CRIL gives graduate students the opportunity to participate on both sides of the academic publishing business (as content providers and content producers) early in their academic careers and joins world-wide efforts in opening access to academic content. Benefits of publishing in CRIL include:

  • Secure, long-term storage in CU Libraries’ Institutional Repository.
  • Visibility in University Libraries OneSearch and Google Scholar search results.
  • PlumX Metrics (e.g. number of abstract views, full text downloads, etc.).
  • Availability of readership distribution and usage reports (per article, volume, and entire journal).
