Founded in 1979, MIT Working Papers in Linguistics is an entirely student-managed organization, run by the graduate students in the MIT Doctoral Program in Linguistics. MITWPL is dedicated to promoting student linguistic research by publishing dissertations and papers and, with the proceeds, equitably funding travel, fieldwork and equipment purchases.

MITWPL publishes working papers and dissertations for MIT Linguistics and Philosophy, University of Connecticut Linguistics and the University of Rochester Center for Language Sciences. If your department would like to outsource its working paper publications to MITWPL, please contact the management.
