Focus and Scope
Anglo Saxonica is a multidisciplinary journal that publishes original and innovative research on a variety of issues relevant to the study of English(es), broadly understood both as language and as all the literatures and cultures of the English-speaking world. In so doing, Anglo Saxonica also promotes dialogue among English-speaking geocultural areas. Its editorial policy promotes the thematic cohesion of each volume, open to different academic approaches on current issues in English and American studies, including original research articles, reviews, interviews and selections of creative writing. The journal also publishes special issues with a particular thematic focus that are guest-edited by leading scholars in the field.
All the works submitted, in English or in Portuguese, are subjected to initial appraisal by the editors and, if found suitable for further consideration, to double blind peer review by independent expert referees.
Anglo Saxonica is indexed in Scopus, ERIH PLUS and MLA Directory of Periodicals and is hosted at the University of Lisbon Centre for English Studies.
The journal is published online biannually, organised in a miscellaneous issue and a special issue. Articles are made available as soon as they are ready to ensure that there are no unnecessary delays in getting content publicly available.
Thematically-oriented collections of articles are welcome and will be published as part of the special issue, but also within a separate collection page.
