Journal of Language Survey Reports (SIL)

The Journal of Language Survey Reports (formerly Electronic Survey Reports) is a peer-reviewed journal for original research articles published since 1999. Reports provide basic data about non-dominant languages and the community of people to whom those languages belong, and thereby contribute to decision-making for the intentional planning of language development. The reports, published by SIL International®, are authored primarily but not exclusively by SIL staff. Some are preliminary work papers based on field notes and not presented as polished research. Sometimes these are the work of young sociolinguists with minimal training while others are from seasoned professionals. They are sometimes the first and only written descriptions of a people and their language. The journal title was changed from Electronic Survey Reports to Journal of Language Survey Reports starting with the first issue in 2021.
Some included titles are:
  • Survey Report on the Kapauri Language of Papua, Indonesia
  • A Sociolinguistic Survey of the Ejuele (Doka) [dbi] Language of Kaduna State, Nigeria
