Lingue e Linguaggi
The journal Lingue e Linguaggi - sponsored by the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures at the University of Salento (Italy) - is pleased to announce an extended deadline for submitting manuscripts to appear in Volume 10.
Manuscripts will be accepted until 20 October 2013. The expected publication date is December 2013.
Lingue e Linguaggi is an international and interdisciplinary journal in the areas of humanities, with particular emphasis on modern languages, linguistic analysis, literary criticism, and translation. It is published twice a year. All issues are freely available on the journal website, where you can print out a single paper or the entire volume, using the print-on-demand facility. To take full advantage of electronic publishing, each paper is marked by an individual code (DOI), which makes them readily identifiable and searchable via Web technologies.
The journal, which accepts manuscripts in English, Italian, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian and Albanian (in honor of the many souls that make up our Department), adopts a double-blind refereeing process.
Authors wishing to submit a manuscript to the journal must register as authors in the journal website (http://siba-ese.unisalento.it/index.php/linguelinguaggi) and submit their manuscript using the New Submission feature.
Guidelines and templates for authors are available on the journal's home page, at the link Author's_Guidelines (http://siba-ese.unisalento.it/index.php/linguelinguaggi/about/submissions#authorGuidelines).
Each volume will include papers, as well as reviews. There is no set maximum length for papers, but we suggest they should be 10-25 pages long. The reviews should be 2-10 pages long.
Each author may submit a maximum of one manuscript and one review per issue. Only original manuscripts which have not been submitted to other journals will be accepted. The originality of the manuscript will be assessed through specific anti-plagiarism systems, before the manuscript is sent to reviewers. Manuscripts should meet the typographical and editorial standards specified in the journal's website.
