The IJCL is a peer-reviewed jounal and referees will be looking at a paper with regard to its originality, significance, academic rigour, and presentation of the argument. A MS submitted for publication in the IJCL should not at the same time be under consideration for publication elsewhere.
The lengths of full research papers should normally be between 7,000 and 10,000 words. Shorter notes on new corpora or technical descriptions of tools and annotation schemes can be published as articles of an extent between 2,000 and 4,000 words.
Manuscripts of articles and reviews must be prepared in accordance with the style sheet.
Manuscripts should be submitted through the journal's online submission and manuscript tracking site. Please upload both a word (.doc) and PDF version of your manuscript.
Please consult the Short Guide to EM for Authors before you submit your paper.

Call for Papers
Special Issue on COVID-19: Call for Abstracts
As there is currently much interest in the language relating to the COVID-19 pandemic, the International Journal of Corpus Linguistics welcomes abstracts for a Special Issue on the theme of COVID-19. Articles which present clear innovation in, and implications for, corpus linguistics theory and methods are particularly welcome, though this is not essential. Studies can be based on data from any language, but articles should be written in English. We welcome proposals for full research articles (approximately 8,000 words in length) or short articles which introduce a tool or resource for corpus linguistic studies of COVID-19 (approximately 3-4,000 words).
We are inviting abstracts for this special issue. Abstracts should be between 500 and 1,000 words in length and should contain the following information: i.) title; ii.) authors’ names and correspondence details; iii.) indication as to whether the submission will be a full or short article; iv.) article aims/objectives; v.) data and methods of analysis; vi.) (provisional) findings; vii.) (provisional) conclusions and implications. Abstracts should make the article’s relevance to corpus linguistics theory and/or methods clear. Please submit abstracts by email to Michaela Mahlberg (m.a.mahlbergbham.ac.uk) and Gavin Brookes (g.j.brookeslancaster.ac.uk) by 10th August 2020. We aim to publish accepted articles early in 2021.
Timetable for special issue:
Abstract submission: 10th August 2020
Decisions on abstracts: 17th August 2020
Submission of full papers: 31st October 2020
Target submission date: Early 2021
