Journal of Critical Studies in Language and Literature
About the Journal
Journal of Critical Studies in Language and Literature (JCSLL) is a double-blind peer-reviewed "Premier" open access journal that represents an interdisciplinary and critical forum for analysing and discussing the various dimensions in the interplay between language, literature, and translation. It locates at the intersection of disciplines including linguistics, discourse studies, stylistic analysis, linguistic analysis of literature, comparative literature, literary criticism, translation studies, literary translation and related areas. It focuses mainly on the empirically and critically founded research on the role of language, literature, and translation in all social processes and dynamics.
Articles submitted to JCSLL should bring together critical theories and concepts and in-depth, empirical, language- and literary-oriented analysis. They have to be problem-oriented and rely on well-informed contemporary as well as historical contextualisation of the analysed texts and contexts. Methodologies can be qualitative, quantitative or mixed, but must in any case be systematic and anchored in relevant linguistic, literary, and translation disciplines.
JCSLL welcomes review papers of any research monograph or edited volume which takes a critical and analytical approach to the study of language, literature, and translation, as broadly conceived above. If you are interested in reviewing any recent, relevant text please email email@example.com and we can arrange for a book copy to be sent to you.
To make your initial submission process as easy as possible, as well as to make it easier for the editors and referees to review your manuscript, we require your manuscript in the journal template. For the journal template, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are not a native English speaker, JCSLL recommends that your manuscript be professionally edited prior to submission. JCSLL authors will receive a 15% discount off the language editing services provided by Global Talent Academy. Please note that you should avoid making additional changes to your manuscript after receiving the edited version, as grammatical errors maybe introduced.
