Scope

Language Sciences is a forum for debate, conducted so as to be of interest to the widest possible audience, on key issues pertaining to the study of language, languaging, and linguistic interaction. The journal focuses on innovative and radical developments in linguistics and related disciplines. The Editors particularly welcome interdisciplinary contributions that connect the study of language to relevant areas of anthropology, biology, cognitive science, psychology, and philosophy. In addition, we encourage the submission of essays on topics in the epistemology of the language sciences. Join the conversation about this journal

SJR

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.
