Lingvistik' is an internet journal founded in 2011 and supported by the International University of Karlovo (Bulgaria), with a review group of linguists whose occupations cover all the recognised academic fields of linguistics. Its specialty is that articles will be presented in the mother tongue of each author and will simultaneously appear in translation to the international language Esperanto. The second number will be that of the year 2013, and articles for it are now being sought. Subjects could be sociolinguistics, language policy, studies on defined aspects of language, study of dialects, interlinguistics, language interference, generative grammar, psycholinguistics, language teaching, etc. This list only aims to give examples, not to limit the scope of articles. All of the following would be equally appropriate: articles on theoretical research, case studies, applied linguistics studies, summaries of the state of the science in defined areas of linguistics. Authors are asked to write in their own language. Where needed the editors will help in producing the Esperanto version. We will be responsible for an anonymous review of the articles by at least two members of the science committee with external consultants where needed, for editing and for publishing. The deadline for the 2013 journal will be the end of December 2013.
Guidelines for writing the articles:
The articles will be published in .pdf format, but please send them - in two versions, one of which necessarily anonymous - in the format .doc (Word 2003) with the following layout:
Above/below: 5.5 cm
Right/left: 4.5 cm
Space between lines: 1.5 cm
Space in the first line of the first page: 1 cm
Font for the text: Times New Roman 12 for the alphabets where this is possible. A similar font, to be attached, for other alphabets.
The first line will have the title of the article in size 14. The name of the author will follow, in size 12 (except in the anonymous version). Both the title and the author name will be justified left. There is to be a short abstract of the article (around 100 words) in the original language and in at least another one (Esperanto, English, French, Spanish, Portoguese, Greek, Russian or Italian). Possible citations should be in italics or similar. At the end of the article, right justified, will be - in only one of the two versions - the name of the author, his affiliation if available, and e-mail address. Following will be the references, which can be written according to the normal criteria in the author's faculty. Footnotes are to be at the bottom of each page. Editing for the Esperanto version will follow the rules in http://www.esperanto.be/fel/mon/mon_konv.Php ,adapting where necessary.
