Author Guidelines

The online journal BIOLINGUISTICS is a full-fledged, bona fide academic publication with its own ISSN and thorough review process. However, resources do not allow for hiring editorial staff. We thus request from authors of manuscripts accepted for publication in BIOLINGUISTICS to adhere to the journal's stylesheet as carefully as possible.

BIOLINGUISTICS is a platinum open-access journal with no article processing charges (APCs) or submission charges for authors.

Stylesheets/Templates are available for Microsoft Word and LaTeX. Articles that will appear in publication should be submitted in PDF and either RTF, MS Word, or LaTeX. At this point, we cannot accept any other formats.

The initial submission should follow the Submission Preparation Checklist.

Stylesheet and guidelines can be found on the Template which can be downloaded from http://www.research.biolinguistics.eu/BL_Template.doc.

 

Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  1. The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  2. The anonymous submission file is in Portable Document Format (PDF).
