Journal Information

Title: Journal of Politeness Research: Language, Behaviour, Culture
Publisher: De Gruyter Mouton
Description: Editor-in-Chief: Karen Grainger

IMPACT FACTOR 2017: 1.000

The "Journal of Politeness Research" responds to the urgent need to provide an international forum for the discussion of all aspects of politeness as a complex linguistic and non-linguistic phenomenon. Politeness has interested researchers in fields of academic activity as diverse as business studies, foreign language teaching, developmental psychology, social psychology, sociolinguistics, linguistic pragmatics, social anthropology, cultural studies, sociology, communication studies, and gender studies. The journal provides an outlet through which researchers on politeness phenomena from these diverse fields of interest may publish their findings and where it will be possible to keep up to date with the wide range of research published in this expanding field. The wealth of published material on the subject of polite language usage should not blind us to the need to extend the study of politeness beyond its linguistic aspects. Hence the multidisciplinary scope of this new journal, which aims to attract original contributions from researchers in a wide range of academic and professional fields. This ambitious and exciting new venture is also a long-awaited opportunity to create synergies between researchers from different disciplines and to encourage dissemination of findings from lesser studied languages and cultures in an effort to deepen our understanding of the nature of politeness within and beyond Western geographical and ideological boundaries.

The journal is published twice a year and publishes research articles, review articles on books published within the scope of politeness research and book reviews relevant to politeness research but of a more general nature. There will also be conference announcements and information on upcoming academic events.

"Journal of Politeness Research" is a peer-reviewed journal of international scope.

The journal is associated with the work of the international Politeness Research Group whose founding British universities include Leeds, Loughborough, Nottingham, Nottingham Trent, Sheffield Hallam and York St. John.

The Research Centre for Linguistic Politeness Research encourages research and hosts conferences, seminars and symposia on the subject of linguistic politeness.
