The Journal of Japanese Linguistics focuses on important issues in the field of Japanese linguistics and language education as well as overarching objectives that shape the study of Japanese linguistics. The journal publishes articles and book reviews in the traditional subdisciplines of linguistics as well as in neighboring disciplines in the fields of Japanese linguistics and Japanese language education. JJL also promotes the exchange of knowledge regarding language education among researchers in Japanese linguistics and Japanese language teaching.
The Journal of Japanese Linguistics (JJL), formerly Papers in Japanese Linguistics (Volume 1, 1972 – Volume 11, 1986), was under the management of Japan’s Nanzan University (Volume 12, 1990 – Volume 16, 1998). At the dawn of the new millennium, the JJL editorial office was transferred to Indiana University (Volume 17, 2001 – Volume 21, 2005) in the U.S. The office then moved to the Ohio State University (Volume 22, 2006 – Volume 28, 2015), and to San Francisco State University (Volume 29, 2013 – Volume 33, 2017). From 2018 the journal is published by De Gruyter Mouton and the entire archive will be made available.
