Editorial policy and goals
Trabalhos em Linguística Aplicada (Papers in Applied Linguistics) is a three-times-a-year publication of the Graduate Program in Applied Linguistics of the Institute of Language Studies at the State University of Campinas (Unicamp). Its aim is to disseminate works that contribute with new perspectives to the field of Applied Linguistics.
The journal is interested in publishing articles that reflect on language along different research fields: Interculturality and Identities; Teaching and Learning of Native and Foreign Languages; Technologies and social media; Translation; Multimodality and Intermediality; Linguistic Anthropology; Language Policies; Discourses and Politics.
It is part of the Journal’s editorial policy to receive manuscripts written not only in Portuguese, but also in English, French or Spanish. Two abstracts are required: one in the manuscript’s original language (Portuguese, English, French or Spanish), the other in English, as specified in the “publishing norms”. For manuscripts written in English, the second abstract should be in Portuguese. Each abstract must be followed by a list of three keywords in the language of the abstract. Authors are entitled to receive one print copy of the issue in which their article is published.
The journal does not publish chapters or stretches of completed theses and/or dissertations.
Supervisors or Sponsors of Masters, Doctoral or Post-Doctoral research that is being submitted to the journal should be referred to in the footnotes as supervising professors; they ought not be listed as co-authors.
Co-authored manuscripts are accepted as long as the ethical compromise of effective authorial participation of all signing authors is strictly maintained. Our policy is in accordance with the following Brazilian research agencies’ recommendations:
“Only the people who effectively lent significant contribution to the work deserve to be listed as authors of a manuscript. By significant contribution this report means the making of experiments, participation in the elaboration of experimental planning, analysis of results or the elaboration of the manuscript draft. The lending of equipment, acquisition of grants, or general supervision do not by themselves justify the inclusion of new authors, who therefore must be the object of acknowledgement. (Report of the Commission of the CNPq Research Integrity, CNPq, 2011)
“In a scientific work, authorship should include all and only researchers that have made direct and substantial intellectual contributions to the design or execution of research and have given their express permission to be included. Specifically, the provision of financial and infrastructural resources (e.g., laboratories, equipment, inputs, materials, human resources, institutional support) is not sufficient ground for being listed among the authors of the scientific works resulting from the research project.” (Code of Good Scientific Practice, Fapesp, 2014)
The Journal also publishes translations with commentary of currentarticles, interviewsand reviews of recent and relevant work in the field. Besides presenting the work to the reader, reviews must discuss it with originality and depth. Only one review and one translation will be published in each issue, all written and/or rendered into Portuguese (although the Journal may eventually consider the publication of such genres in other language).
Manuscripts must be submitted online to the address: http://periodicos.sbu.unicamp.br/ojs/index.php/tla/about/submissions. The latter specifies the procedures for the author(s) registration and for the submission of the manuscript for peer review. Author(s) must complete the registration, including institution, city and country. All communication about the review process will be made through the Journal’s online system.
There is no fee for submission and review articles.
Articles submitted for evaluation must be sent electronically at the website http://periodicos.sbu.unicamp.br/ojs/index.php/tla/about/submissions, where the procedures for author registration and the remission of the corresponding article for evaluation will be specified.
