Rutgers Optimality Archive (ROA)
The Rutgers Optimality Archive (ROA) had been taken offline after a hacking incursion. The site was temporarily replaced with a simplified site, and new submissions were accepted via email. We're pleased to announce that a new and improved version of ROA is up, and submissions may now be submitted directly via the web interface.
All former URLs for articles and info pages have been redirected to the new site and are still valid. ROA now runs on a server maintained by the School of Arts and Sciences at Rutgers University. We are grateful to the technical staff there for their generosity in hosting and maintaining a secure and stable site.
ROA is a distribution point for research in Optimality Theory and its conceptual affiliates. Posting in ROA is open to all who wish to disseminate their work in OT and related theories of grammar.
Access to content posted on ROA is completely open, but submission of new content to ROA requires an account. Current ROA authors should be able to log in as before, here.
New authors may register here.
Any questions should be directed to Eric Bakovic at roa (at) ruccs.rutgers.edu.
