Call for Papers


Linguistic Typology at the Crossroads (LTC) is a newly founded peer reviewed journal devoted to linguistic typology, considered in its intersections with neighboring fields such as historical linguistics, sociolinguistics, psycho- and neurolinguistics, corpus linguistics, and computational linguistics (a full description of the journal philosophy and policies can be found here:

The journal provides immediate and free open access, with neither embargo nor article processing fees, and is hosted by the AlmaDL platform, the digital library of the University of Bologna – Alma Mater Studiorum devoted to peer reviewed open access journals ( The double blind reviewing process leads to an editorial decision within 5-7 weeks from original submission.

LTC has two issues per year. We especially encourage submissions investigating typological questions in the light of methods and data coming from the aforementioned neighboring fields. Submissions dealing with a small set of languages or with a single language are also acceptable if they are typologically informed and have a theoretical impact (e.g. by containing new empirical evidence or challenging current interpretations of available data).

Submissions must be made online HERE.

Enquiries about the journal and requests for further information can be addressed at or directly to the Editors-in-chief or the Associate editors.
