Computational Linguistics is a peer-reviewed academic journal in the field of computational linguistics. It is published quarterly by MIT Press for the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL). The journal includes articles, squibs and book reviews.

The journal was established as the American Journal of Computational Linguistics in 1974 by David Hays and was originally published only as microfiche until 1978. George Heidorn transformed it into a print journal in 1980, with quarterly publication. In 1984 the journal was renamed Computational Linguistics. Since 2009, it has become an online-only open access journal, freely available to anyone.[1]
