Call For Papers

Journal of Semantics aims to be the premier journal in semantics. It covers all areas in the study of meaning, with a focus on formal and experimental methods. The Journal welcomes submissions on semantics, pragmatics, the syntax/semantics interface, cross-linguistic semantics, experimental studies of meaning (processing, acquisition, neurolinguistics), and semantically informed philosophy of language.

Types of articles

Journal of Semantics all types of research articles – with the usual proviso that length must be justified by scientific value. Typical contributions fall anywhere in the range of 500 - 20,000 words range. Very rarely we will consider manuscripts that fall outside of this range provided that the content of the paper warrants it.

Short Contributions

Short Contributions should be compact (between 500 and 4,500 words) yet make an influential contribution to the field. Such contributions may point out challenges that are highly relevant to theoretical issues in semantics and pragmatics ('squibs') or they may influence the future direction of the field, be it theoretically, empirically, technically or any other way. In other words, such contributions provide a stimulus to (part of) the field, without necessarily offering a fully worked out model or theory. Short contributions are online only and will be published Open Access before issue publication.

Please see the Information for Authors page for more information

Editorial decisions within 6-12 weeks The Journal aims to make editorial decisions within 6-12 weeks of submission, depending on the specifics of the manuscript.
