Cognitive Semiotics

Editor In Chief: Peer F. Bundgaard

Cognitive Semiotics is a peer-reviewed, multidisciplinary journal devoted to high-quality research, integrating perspectives, methods and insight from cognitive science, cognitive linguistics and semiotics, placing meaning-making into the broader context of cognitive, social, and neurobiological processes. The journal is a platform for the study of meaning-making writ large: in our interactions with the surroundings in all domains, in the natural as well as in the social world, in language and other sign vehicles, as well as in perception, and in action.

Contributions should be in English.

Manuscripts should be submitted to the Editor-in-Chief Peer Bundgaard at sempb@dac.au.dk.

Manuscripts must be formatted according to the style sheet of the journal (see link below), and should, as a rule, be no longer than 7500 words. An abstract (maximum of 200 words) summarizing the whole article (not just the conclusions) and five keywords should also be supplied. Manuscripts should be reasonably divided into sections, and where necessary, subsections, with numbered headings. All pages of the manuscript should be numbered consecutively.

Tables and figures included in the manuscript should also be submitted in a separate file/files to ensure the best quality for reproduction.

Because manuscripts are evaluated anonymously, they should not bear the author's name or institutional affiliation. Please remove from the manuscript all references or acknowledgements that might indicate the identity of the author.

Review articles should be headed "Review article" and be given an appropriate title that is different from the title of the work(s) under review. The title should be followed by an asterisked footnote, placed at the bottom of the first page of text, containing the bibliographical details of the work(s) under review: *Leonard Talmy, Toward a Cognitive Semantics. Cambridge, MA: MIT Press, 2000.

References to the work under review should be cited by page number alone (e.g., "p. 16"). Otherwise, the references should conform to the style for articles.

Line drawings and photographs (called "Figures" in the text) must be reproducible originals and should be submitted on separate sheets, carefully numbered and labeled. Captions should be typed on a separate sheet and placed at the end of the manuscript.

Tables should be numbered consecutively and titled, and must be referred to in the text. Please refrain from using phrases such as "preceding" or "following" table, as the printer may not be able to preserve its original position. Each table should be submitted on a separate sheet; captions should be listed on a separate page.

Notes should be kept to an absolute minimum.

Style. Authors should refer to the De Gruyter Mouton journal style sheet, especially regarding the proper format for citations and reference entries.

Corrections. Authors are asked to check their manuscripts very carefully before submitting them in order to prevent delays at the proof stage. We ask that authors take special care in checking in-text citations against listings in the References section, making sure the dates and spelling match, and that all works cited are listed.

Proofs. Authors will receive PDF page proofs for correction, which must be returned by dates determined by the publication schedule.

Offprints. Upon publication, authors will receive electronic offprints (in PDF format) of their contribution. Guest editors of special issues will receive complimentary print copies of the issue.
