Transactions of the Association for Computational Linguistics

Transactions of the Association for Computational Linguistics (TACL) is an ACL-sponsored journal that publishes papers in all areas of computational linguistics and natural language processing. TACL has the following features:
  • TACL publishes conference-length papers, but has a journal-style reviewing process (for example, the option for an action editor to recommend the “revise and resubmit” category for a paper).
  • Papers appearing at TACL are eligible for a presentation at certain ACL-sponsored conferences. Thus the model combines the benefits of a journal, with the benefits of being able to present the work at a major conference. (Presentation is optional; authors do not have to present their papers at the conference).
  • TACL accepts submissions all year around (the 1st day of each month is a submission deadline).
  • TACL is committed to fast turnaround reviewing.
