''Globe: A Journal of Language, Culture and Communication'' is an interdisciplinary peer-reviewed open access journal which seeks to publish original research articles of high quality in language, linguistics, and communication studies. ''Globe'' is anchored at Aalborg University in Denmark and is managed by members of two research groups in language and communication. The second issue is scheduled for publication in the fall of 2015, and will consist of a thematic section, an open section, and a section for book reviews.

The thematic section of the second issue focuses on the functionality of language and we invite contributions dealing with all functional aspects of language, such as, but not limited to, the following:
- language in its social, cognitive, discursive, and communicative functions
- language in its literary function (in the perspective of stylistics)
- functional perspectives on linguistic structure and system
- functional categories within and across languages and discourses
- the functionality of individual linguistic phenomena or sets of linguistic phenomena such as constructions, idioms, lexemes, particles, morphemes etc.

Theoretical and metatheoretical papers on functional linguistics as such, or branches of functional linguistics, are also welcome, as are discussions of the concept of linguistic function itself.

The open section and the review section are not thematically restricted, and we welcome contributions for these within all aspects of the general scope of the journal.

The editorial team hereby invites researchers within linguistics, cultural studies, and communication studies (and related fields) to submit contributions in English, Spanish, German, or Danish (which are the publication languages of the journal) to all three sections of the second issue.

Globe is published by Aalborg University Press via the OJS platform which allows for very easy on-line submission and tracking of submitted articles. You will find specific information on how to submit articles and reviews here:
