Scope

The Journal of Historical Sociolinguistics (JHSL) is a double-blind peer-reviewed forum for research into the social history of language. We welcome original contributions (both linguistic and interdisciplinary) from young and established scholars alike on aspects of language and society in the past including (but not limited to) the social embedding of language variation and change, issues of language contact and conflict, historical multilingualism, the social stratification of writing skills, the development of language norms and the impact of language ideologies. JHSL also publishes book reviews of recent work in these domains. Both the managing editorial team and the editorial board are members of the Historical Sociolinguistics Network.

Length and format

JHSL accepts submissions for original research articles, literature reviews, discussion papers and book reviews in English on any of the topics listed above. Article length should in no case exceed 12,000 words, and all articles should be typographically copy-edited and formatted according to the De Gruyter Mouton Journal Style Sheet. Each article shall include a short abstract (150-250 words) and approximately five keywords.

All illustrations, graphics, tables, and maps must be prepared according to the style sheet and the publishers' house style. In case any third-party content (e.g. illustrations and graphics) used in submitted manuscripts requires copyright clearance, the contributor is responsible for obtaining any necessary copyright clearance and shall pay for any third-party clearing unless agreed otherwise.

The editorial team may require any manuscripts to be proof-read and edited by an English language editor at the contributor's expense.

Submission and peer review

Manuscripts (both articles and book reviews) should be submitted online at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jhsl. A user ID and password can be obtained on the first visit. If you have any difficulty using the site, please send an email to jhsl@degruyter.com.

All articles shall consist of original and unpublished work that is not under consideration for publication elsewhere. If authors wish to submit work that has partly been published already or is currently under review for publication elsewhere, they are required to made this known to the editors at the time of first submission.

All submissions will be read by at least two members of the editorial team. If they review the manuscript favourably, they will submit it to a double-blind peer review procedure. The reviewing peers can decide (a) to accept a submission as is, (b) to accept it under the condition of changes, (c) to advise that the manuscript be revised and resubmitted for peer review, or (d) to reject it outright.

Proofs and offprints

Upon acceptance of the manuscript, the editors will review and submit all manuscripts to the publisher in keeping with the publication schedule. After a manuscript is submitted for technical production, no changes will be permitted prior to typesetting. Should the contributor require any changes after the first proof stage, the resulting costs of such corrections or additions shall be borne by the person requiring the changes.

The electronic proofs of accepted articles will be sent to the first-named contributors directly by the publisher. The contributors will receive a cover letter along with their proofs requesting that they return their proof corrections to the production department in Berlin by the deadline specified. Upon publication, the publishers will send PDF offprints to the first-named contributors. Contributors to possible special issues will receive a print copy of the entire issue, in addition to their PDF offprint.

Copyright

The publisher will provide a Copyright Transfer Agreement form that each contributor must sign and return to the publisher before his or her article can be published. By signing and submitting the agreement, the contributor states acceptance of the publication conditions stipulated on the form. The full text of the copyright policy for all De Gruyter journals can be consulted at http://www.degruyter.com/dg/page/308/copyright-agreement.
