Further, farther, LaTeX

Language Log – and, as ever, their comment contributors – got involved with the history of further and farther last month, a post we remembered today in response to a query from an author. The post is available here, and if you find that it passes the time quickly then we’ve got a query of our own: are you a capable copy-editor with TeX experience? We’d be pleased to hear from you if you are; just drop us a line.

Volume 1, issue 1

Congratulations to Juliano Fiori and his colleagues on the launch of the Journal of Humanitarian Affairs, which it’s been a pleasure for us to help out with. The new journal is hosted jointly by The Humanitarian Affairs Team at Save the Children UK, Centre de Réflexion sur l’Action et les Savoirs Humanitaires MSF (Paris) and the Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute at the University of Manchester – and you can read more, including the issue itself, at manchester openhive, the home of Manchester University Press’s Open Access content.
