Iberia: An International Journal of Theoretical Linguistics
Iberia is a six-monthly, online, open-access journal on theoretical linguistics in any of its disciplines: syntax, semantics, phonology, discourse analysis, etc. It is mostly focused on generative grammar, although it is open to other frameworks as well. The main goal of the journal is to circulate double blind peer-reviewed, on-going work by researchers in the field in as short a period of time as possible, made feasible through the online platform of Iberia. The language of publication is English.
Iberia is already indexed in the following databases: Ulrichs, ISOC, Latindex, DICE, DIALNET.We are currently applying to other international databases. The editors are very pleased to announce that Iberia has been classified as a B journal on a scale of A to D, despite its youth (CIRC category). Iberia meets 35 features of Latindex out of 36.
