Linguistik online

Calls for papers

The concept of the new journal Linguistik online is to facilitate access to the results of linguistic research. In times when the financial resources of libraries in Western Europe are continuously shrinking, and in some parts of Eastern Europe virtually non-existent, Linguistik online is free of charge and available to all interested. It covers a broad range of linguistic fields. Central areas of linguistic research are dealt with regularly, and less frequently discussed questions are the subject of special issues, where guest editors are always welcome.

Linguistik online is an international European journal and will therefore publish articles in all European languages. However, potential authors should take the following facts into consideration: For this reason, Linguistik online recommends its authors in general to restrict themselves to English, French, German, and Spanish.

Linguistik online  is based in Frankfurt (Oder) at the Faculty for Cultural Sciences at the European University "Viadrina". The library of this faculty will keep one paper copy of each edition by way of an additional back up.
