How to publish in this journal


Calidoscópio is a journal of Applied Linguistics in its broadest sense and thus not restricted only to topics revolving around language teaching and learning. Its mission is to investigate both theoretical and empirical issues of language use in a variety of social contexts, recognizing and focusing precisely on the centrality of language in order to reach better understanding and possible solutions for those issues. The scope of Calidoscópio is articulated with the understanding of Applied Linguistics as a multidisciplinary area whose focus is language in society. Thus the knowledge produced is conceived as organized and identified more by the themes and contexts of investigation and application than by the theories and methodologies used in such investigations. The journal is called Calidoscópio (Kaleidoscope) as a metaphor for the conception that multiple theoretical and methodological approaches can produce new interpretations and different proposals about language use, which, like in a kaleidoscope, result from various combinations of these domains. Calidoscópio is a peer-reviewed journal published three times a year. It is articulated with the areas of investigation of the Graduate Program in Applied Linguistics at the Universidade do Vale do Rio dos Sinos: (1) Language and School Practices; (3) Text, Lexicon and Technology; and (3) Interaction and Discursive Practices. This way, each issue is dedicated to one of these research areas, being the three of them annually contemplated. Join the conversation about this journal

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
