Aim & Scope

Dilbilim Araştırmaları Dergisi (Journal of Linguistics Research) is an academic journal that has been published since 1990.

The main goal of the journal is to support the development of general linguistics in Turkey encouraging contributions of scientific quality. The journal also invites contributions on issues pertaining to various aspects of language that would be of interest to a broad range of readers and aims to be a platform of discussion of such topics. The journal is primarily devoted to problems of contemporary linguistics in Turkish and other Turkic languages and publishes papers written in Turkish or English both in theoretical and applied linguistics. The only criterion for the selection of papers for publication is originality and scholarly standing. The journal does not require a particular theoretical orientation and it does not commit itself to a specific area of linguistics. Studies outside the field of linguistics are not accepted to the journal.

• Journal of Linguistics Research also publishes special issues. In this regard, the journal editors may invite researchers to guest editorship. Articles to be published in special issues are subject to peer-review as in other issues. At the same time, academics who want to edit an issue related to the topics covered in the journal may also apply to the journal editors.
• All articles published in the journal go through a double-blind peer-review process.
• The articles submitted to the journal must be original works that have not been published or sent to be published elsewhere. For scientific evaluation, manuscripts accepted in accordance with the journal article submission rules and the scope of the journal are sent to at least two reviewers who are experts in their fields. Editorial Board members evaluate each article in terms of suitability, either before or after the comments of the reviewers. The editorial board makes the final decision for all submitted manuscripts. The Editorial Board of the journal is committed to complying with the criteria of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
