Aims and Scope

Multilingua is a refereed academic journal devoted to multilingualism, language learning, intercultural communication and translating and interpreting in their social contexts. Multilingua focuses on critical sociolinguistic studies of language and communication in globalization, transnationalism, migration, and mobility across time and space.

Now publishing six issues per volume, Multilingua has established itself as an international forum for interdisciplinary research on linguistic diversity in social life. The journal is particularly interested in publishing high-quality empirical yet theoretically-grounded research from hitherto neglected sociolinguistic contexts worldwide.

Multilingua is
aimed at scholars, students and practitioners and promotes an appreciation of linguistic and cultural diversity and contributes to research and practice in language education, communication management, and policy and planning.

In addition to research articles, Multilingua also publishes research notes, reports, debates, review articles and short reviews. Multilingua regularly includes special issues devoted to the in-depth exploration of a specific topic in the field.
