About the Journal

Journal of Slavic Linguistics, or JSL, is the official journal of the Slavic Linguistics Society. JSL publishes research articles and book reviews that address the description and analysis of Slavic languages and that are of general interest to linguists. Published papers deal with any aspect of synchronic or diachronic Slavic linguistics -- phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, or pragmatics -- which raises substantive problems of broad theoretical concern or proposes significant descriptive generalizations. Comparative studies and formal analyses are also published. Different theoretical orientations are represented in the journal. One volume (two regular issues) is published per year, ca. 360 pp. Starting with volume 29 (2021), JSL also publishes annually an extra issue that contains the proceedings from the Formal Approaches to Slavic Linguistics (FASL) conference.  See our Ethics statement for an overview of our publishing/review process.

JSL is currently available through these two electronic journals hubs:
