When the International Quantitative Linguistics Association was founded somewhat later in the same year, a contract was made between the editor, the Association, and the publisher. This contract regulates the role of JQL as the official journal of IQLA. IQLA members can subscribe to the journal under favourable terms.

The aim of Glottometrics is quantification, measurement and mathematical modeling of language phenomena. We invite contributions on probabilistic or other mathematical models and statistical analyses of language and text data.
