Voprosy Jazykoznanija, founded in January 1952 and issued bimonthly, is the leading Russian academic journal devoted to linguistics. The journal welcomes original research on linguistic theory, areal, typological, and comparative linguistics, sociolinguistics, computational and corpus linguistics, psycholinguistics, and related fields. The journal is published under the auspices of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Department of Historical and Philological Sciences.
Preference is given to papers that make a theoretical contribution or present new empirical data of general interest. Papers assessing minor language-specific descriptive problems, as well as those dealing with “cultural concepts”, “linguistic consciousness”, literary science, and folklore studies are generally discouraged; the editorial board reserves the right to decline such articles without further consideration.
