Journal of German Literature and Culture of the Early Modern Period (1400-1750) / Zeitschrift für deutsche Literatur und Kultur der Frühen Neuzeit
2023 Impact Factor: 0,2
5 Year Impact Factor: 0,2

From its foundation in 1972, Daphnis was conceived as a platform for the publication of research into German literature and culture of the early modern period (14th-18th century). Since then it has developed to take on board interdisciplinary and intercultural perspectives. It is considered today an outstanding international scholarly forum for research into the early modern period. From a comparative point of view it examines the relationship between German literatures and cultural history and the culture of other European (and non-European) countries in the period, as well as such phenomena as cultural transfer. It addresses problems pertaining to the early new high German language and to Neo-Latin literature, as well as to new research fields such as intermediality, performance theories or gender studies. Within its four issues a year Daphnis offers the possibility of thematic volumes. With its double blind peer-review procedures, Daphnis is a platform which welcomes previously unpublished contributions (in German or English) under the headings: Research Articles, Miscellaneous Contributions, Bibliography and Book Reviews.

Peer Review Policy: All articles published in Daphnis undergo a double-anonymous external peer review process. This includes articles published in special issues.

Die Zeitschrift Daphnis ist seit 1972 als Organ zur Erforschung der deutschen Literatur(en) und Kultur(en) der Frühen Neuzeit (14.-18.Jh) konzipiert worden. Seit ihrer Gründung hat sie sich im Sinne einer breiteren Interdisziplinarität und interkulturellen Perspektive entwickelt und ausdifferenziert. Heute gilt sie als ein international anerkanntes wissenschaftliches Forum für Frühneuzeitforschung. Sie berücksichtigt unter komparatistischem Aspekt die Beziehungen der deutschen Literatur und Kultur zu den europäischen (auch außereuropäischen) Kulturen dieses Zeitraums und Phänomene des Kulturtransfers. Hinzu kommen aktuelle Fragestellungen der frühneuhochdeutschen Sprache, der neulateinischen Literatur wie auch neuere Forschungsfelder der Intermedialität, Performanz, Gender Studies u.a. Im Rahmen der jährlich vorgesehenen vier Hefte sind inhaltlich geschlossene Themenhefte möglich und werden von Gastherausgebern verantwortet. Im Daphnis werden noch unveröffentlichte Beiträge (in deutscher und englischer Sprache) zu den Rubriken „Abhandlungen“, „Miszellen“, „Berichte“, „Bibliographien“ im Peer-Review-Verfahren aufgenommen. Darüber hinaus erscheinen Rezensionen zu aktuellen Publikationen der Epoche.

The Journal of Jewish Languages (JJL) constitutes a venue for academic research in the multifaceted field of Jewish Languages. Jewish languages are the languages spoken and written by Jews in their communities around the world. Among these are Yiddish, Judeo-Spanish, Judeo-Arabic, Jewish Aramaic, Judeo-Italian, Judeo-French, Judeo-Provençal, Judeo-Persian, Jewish English, Jewish Malayalam and more. Although these belong to a variety of genealogical language families, Jewish languages have common linguistic features, thus constituting a distinct field of research.

The Journal of Jewish Languages encourages comparative studies across the different Jewish languages as well as in-depth linguistic and philological research of the individual languages and their varieties. The JJL promotes studies that focus on diverse aspects, such as the interactions of these languages with other languages (especially Hebrew, Aramaic, and the surrounding non-Jewish languages), sociolinguistics, translation traditions, and more.
Articles in this journal focus on medieval, modern, and contemporary Jewish languages and are based on manuscripts, printed material, orally transmitted translations, field work recordings, online speech samples, and other sources.

Research on Hebrew will be considered for publication in JJL only if it relates to other languages Jews have spoken or written.

JJL encourages diverse methodological and theoretical approaches from dialectology, sociolinguistics, discourse analysis, historical linguistics, formal linguistics, philology, and other fields.
Peer Review Policy: The Journal of Jewish Languages (JJL) is a double-anonymous peer-reviewed journal. This includes articles published in special issues.

Evolution of Languages, Contact and Discourse
Editors-in-Chief: and
Founding Editor:
The Journal of Language Contact (JLC) is a journal focused on the study of language contact, language use and language change in accordance with a view of language contact whereby both empirical data (the precise description of languages and how they are used) and the resulting theoretical elaborations (hence the statement and analysis of new problems) become the primary engines for advancing our understanding of the nature of language. This involves linguistic, anthropological, historical, and cognitive factors. Such an approach makes a major new contribution to understanding language change at a time when there is a notable increase of interest and activity in this field.
The Journal of Language Contact accepts articles in English and French.
Peer Review Policy: The Journal of Language Contact (JLC) is a double-anonymous peer-reviewed journal. Each article published has been reviewed anonymously by at least two external reviewers. This includes articles published in special issues.

Journal of Language Contact (JLC) est une revue focalisée sur les problématiques et les dynamiques de la transformation des langues et des pratiques langagières dans les situations de contact au sein desquelles elles se développent normalement et naturellement.
Les orientations de recherche retenues s’appuient à la fois sur l’étude des données empiriques (descriptions précises) et sur le développement d’une réflexion théorique corrélative (qui peut faire émerger de nouvelles questions et de nouvelles problématiques). L’articulation entre approche empirique et réflexion théorique est ici considérée comme essentielle, car assurant la base même de notre compréhension des phénomènes linguistiques saisis à travers les effets et les conséquences de leur usage.
Ce positionnement suppose d’ouvrir la perspective au-delà des questions strictement linguistiques et de retenir la pertinence des facteurs anthropologiques, historiques et cognitifs. L’objectif final de Journal of Language Contact est d’accompagner la recherche et d’œuvrer pour des contributions majeures dans le champ.
Journal of Language Contact accepte les articles en anglais et en français.

Editors: and
This international journal covers both innovative and traditional aspects of the study of language change. Work on all aspects of historical and comparative linguistics and any language or language family is welcomed, as long as it bears on topics that are also of theoretical interest. A particular focus is on new developments in the field arising from the accumulation of extensive databases of linguistic variation and typological distributions, parallel texts, and comparative lexicons, which allow for the application of new types of quantitative approaches to diachronic linguistics. Moreover, the journal is intended to serve as an outlet for increasingly important interdisciplinary work on such topics as the evolution of language, archaeology and linguistics, human genetic and linguistic prehistory, and the computational modeling of language dynamics.
Peer Review Policy: Language Dynamics and Change is a double-anonymous peer-reviewed journal. Each article published has been reviewed anonymously by at least two external reviewers. This includes articles published in special issues.

The journal is published continuously. Once an article has been approved for publication by the editors, it is published immediately.

Editor-in-Chief:
Old World publishes contributions in all the humanities which deal with different aspects of the African and Eurasian past. It aims to enrich the academic discourse by promoting high-quality research that moves beyond the conventional Eurocentric paradigms. To achieve this goal, Old World particularly endorses two methodological approaches. On the one hand, the journal is interested in contributions that examine Africa and Eurasia as a networked space, prioritizing connections and exchange over the geographically constrained studies related to political and cultural 'centres' in the past or present. On the other, the journal encourages authors to creatively incorporate into their research elements of ontological frameworks and insightful concepts from the cultures of their study.

Old World's emphasis on the study of premodern Africa and Eurasia as a networked space takes methodological inspiration from the Global History approach, which views the world in the past as an inter-connected area, without imposing on it the perspective of Western Europe or other hegemonistic areas. The editors of Old World believe that the insights of Global History apply to a broader range of disciplines, and they encourage authors to focus on the connections and exchange in their studies of such fields as Art History, Philosophy, Archaeology, Linguistics, and Literature. By encouraging the creative use of premodern ontological systems, Old World aims to overcome some of the constraints related to the imposition of the Eurocentric discourse on the study of historical societies. The ontological and terminological systems employed in premodern sources may reflect a more adequate way of explaining the realities of the time than what can be achieved using the conventional academic vocabulary. Therefore, Old World welcomes contributions that thoroughly examine and explain useful concepts from premodern cultures and adopt them as an analytical tool, and not merely as an object of study. Such concepts can be used to elucidate the societies where they had been conceived, as well as to explain realities of other regions and historical periods.
