How to Get Published

At the Journal of Sociolinguistics, we receive many more submissions than we publish. What follows is a compilation of features which, from our experience, will maximize your chances of having a paper accepted for publication with us. While a few of the points below apply specifically to our Journal, we think most of them constitute general academic good practice. We offer them, then, also in the spirit of opening up consideration of what constitutes good scholarly work, and of making the sometimes mysterious process of journal submission a little more transparent. This is a revision of guidelines first published in 2011.
