2. Editorial Policy

Journal of Semantics aims to be the premier generalist journal in
semantics. It covers *all* areas in the study of meaning, and particularly
welcomes submissions using the best available methodologies in semantics,
pragmatics, the syntax/semantics interface, cross-linguistic semantics,
experimental studies of meaning (processing, acquisition,
neurolinguistics), and semantically informed philosophy of language.

Types of articles:
Journal of Semantics welcomes all types of research articles – with the
usual proviso that length must be justified by scientific value. Besides
standard articles, the Journal will welcome 'squibs,' i.e. very short
empirical or theoretical contributions that make a pointed argument. In
exceptional circumstances, and upon the advice of the head of the Advisory
Board, the Journal will publish 'featured articles,' i.e. pieces that we
take to make extraordinary contributions to the field.

Editorial decisions within 10 weeks:
Informed by past experience, the Journal has set itself the goal of making
editorial decisions within 10 weeks of submission.

Articles can only be accepted upon the advice of anonymous referees, who
are asked to uphold strict scientific standards. Authors may include their
names on their manuscripts, but they need not do so. (To avoid conflicts of
interest, any manuscript submitted by one of the Editors will be handled by
the head of the Advisory Board, who will be responsible for selecting
referees and making an editorial decision).

All submissions are handled electronically. Manuscripts should be emailed
to the Managing Editor [managing.editor.jsgmail.com], who will forward
them to one of the Editors. The latter will be responsible for selecting
referees and making an editorial decision. Receipt of a submission is
systematically confirmed.
