Literature has an important role in human culture. Broadly interpreted,
literature is defined as all cultural artefacts that make use of literary
devices, such as narrativity, metaphoricity, and symbolism.
Its manifestations include novels, short stories, poetry, theatre, film,
television, and, morerecently, digital forms such as hypertext storytelling.
This new journal, Scientific Study of Literature (SSOL), will publish
empirical studies that
apply scientific stringency to cast light on the structure and function of
literary phenomena. The journal welcomes contributions from many
disciplinary perspectives (psychological, developmental, cross-cultural,
cognitive, neuroscience, computational, and educational) to deepen our
understanding of literature, literary processes, and literary applications.
Scientific Study of Literature (SSOL) is the official journal of IGEL (the
International Society for the Emprical Study of Literature). IGEL
membership includes a subscription to SSOL.
Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics; Discourse Analysis; Ling & Literature
