Instructions to authors

We publish original research papers: articles, notes from the field, as well as book reviews, in English or French. Authors willing to submit in another language are invited to contact the editors. After submission, articles undergo a double-blind peer review by external experts different from those of the editorial board.

The peer-review coordination of each submitted paper is assigned to a member of the editorial board. The coordinator finds external reviewers and ensures contacts with them during the reviewing process (max. 3 months). On the basis of the peer reviewers’ reports and the recommendations of the coordinator, the editorial board members decide whether a submission is accepted for publication and, if yes, under which conditions. The external reviews, the recommendations of the editorial board and their official decision are passed on to the author(s) by the editor-in-chief.

Please send article submissions to llafrique[at] Articles that are under active consideration with another journal or another publication outlet may be not submitted.

Each article should include an abstract and 5 keywords in English, French and, if necessary, in the language of the article. The word limit for book reviews is 10,000 characters. Artwork should be provided in .tif files, with a 300 dpi resolution, along with native files, when possible.

Please submit an anonymized version of the article both as a doc and pdf file (please contact us if you prefer to submit a LaTeX file).

After the final revised version of an article has been submitted, the author and LLA sign a non-exclusive copyright transfer agreement.

We encourage you to use Zotero (Unified style sheet for linguistics) for in-text and footnote citations (author-year schema), as well as for the reference list at the end of the article. Please list only and all works that are cited in the paper.
