LANGUAGE AND LINGUISTICS (ISSN:1606-822X; Online ISSN: 2309-5067) is an academic publication of the Institute of Linguistics at Academia Sinica. Established in 2000, it publishes research in general and theoretical linguistics on the languages of East Asia and the Pacific region, including Sino-Tibetan, Austronesian, and the Austroasiatic and Altaic language families (Indo-European and Afro-Asiatic languages are not included). LANGUAGE AND LINGUISTICS publishes both a journal and a monograph series. LANGUAGE AND LINGUISTICS is a pure linguistics journal. We publish articles on general and theoretical linguistic studies, but not articles on applied linguistics such as language teaching, language learning, or translation.
Since 2013, LANGUAGE AND LINGUISTICS has been managed by an Editor-in-Chief, with internationally known scholars with different areas of expertise serving as Associate Editors, Editorial Board Members, and Reviewers, in order to present an informative, insightful scholarly dialogue. The journal's current Impact Factor is 0.348; its 5-year Impact Factor is 0.525.
To increase international citation rates and visibility, LANGUAGE AND LINGUISTICS has been co-published with international publisher SAGE from 2014 to 2016 (Volume 15-17) and distributed worldwide. Beginning in 2017 (Volume 18), LANGUAGE AND LINGUISTICS is in partnership with internationally renowned John Benjamins Publishing Company, one of the leading publishers in the field of language and linguistics.
