Aim and Scope

The main goal of Dilbilim Araştırmaları Dergisi/Journal of Linguistics Research is to support the development of research in general linguistics in Turkey by encouraging contributions of high 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 on such topics. 

Dilbilim Araştırmaları Dergisi is mainly but not exclusively devoted to problems of contemporary linguistics in Turkish and other Turkic languages. It also aims to be a platform for language specificity as well as diversity and welcomes work on endangered languages in EuroAsia or elsewhere in the world. It publishes papers written in Turkish or English both in theoretical and applied linguistics and is open to manuscripts based on emprical, data-driven research as well as those that cross disciplinary boundaries. The only criteria 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.

In addition to original research articles, Dilbilim Araştırmaları Dergisi publishes book reviews that critically assess the contents of a recently published book, particularly but not exclusively on Turkish, Turkic languages or endangered languages in EuroAsia. 

Dilbilim Araştırmaları Dergisi occasionally publishes a special issue. The editors may invite scholars to edit a special issue. Alternatively, prospective editors who wish to compile a special issue on the topics that are in the journal's scope may contact one of the editors. The manuscripts planned to be included in a special issue are subject to similar peer review process.
