Revista CHIMERA – Petición de contribuciones
CHIMERA: Romance Corpora and Linguistic Studies invites submissions for its vol. 8 (2021). CHIMERA intends to promote a stronger connection among the academic communities of the Romance languages speaking countries in Europe and overseas. From 2014, the journal publishes one issue per year.
CHIMERA accepts original articles focusing on the analysis of both spoken and written corpora from any theoretical perspective and about all areas of linguistic research. The journal also publishes reviews regarding books, corpora (accounting for resource building initiatives and innovative annotation practices), and tools for the corpus analysis.
We would like to invite you to submit a manuscript for our next issue. Articles will be in their electronic version as soon as they are accepted and ready, without waiting for the assembly of a complete issue. The current issue will be open till December 2021.
Research papers should be between 5,000 and 10,000 words (including references). Short papers and reviews should be between 2,000 and 4,000 words. Submissions should be written in any Romance language or in English. All submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by at least two members of the scientific committee and will only be accepted if they are recommended for acceptance with minor revisions. Priority will be given to articles that display a strong theoretical background, solid methodology in corpus linguistics, and an innovative approach.
