Focus and Scope

The journal is dedicated to covering all branches of linguistics in the Nordic (North Germanic) languages, Icelandic, Faroese, Norwegian, Danish, and Swedish. It has a strong empirical focus, with maps of isoglosses being a central ingredient. The journal aims to be descriptive, empirical, and scientifically sound, and to present new results.

The editors encourage submission of research articles focussing on dialect features, isoglosses and maps. One volume is published per calendar year, and each volume contains one issue. Authors are encouraged to use the Nordic Dialect Corpus and the Nordic Syntax Database as (part of) their empirical basis.

Peer Review Process

The articles are peer-reviewed. Manuscripts of articles and short communications will normally be read by three referees.

Open Access Policy
