Membership on editorial boards is given on my CV. In the case of two international journals, I have been offered a slightly higher status than as member of their editorial board; this naturally requires extra attention and joint responsibility for the continuing high quality of the journals. These two journals are
Text and Talk (Walter de Gruyter)
- Member of Specialist Board
Constructions and Frames (John Benjamins Publ.)
- Advisory editor until 2020
In the menue under Publications, I have also organized my publications under labels for some of the most frequent fields that I have worked in. Not all publications relevant to a particular category have been included in these lists – just the ones I think are the most important ones.
If you want a full picture of all my scientific publications, go to the Complete List of Publications, where I have disclosed everything, year-by-year.
