Focus and Scope

Nordlyd is published by the Department of Linguistics at the University of Tromsø, and primarily features articles with some connection with Tromsø (e.g. visiting lecturers). All papers are peer-reviewed in a blind reviewing process. Papers published here are normally original, but contributors are at liberty to publish their articles elsewhere at a later date. The editorial committee is appointed by the board of the Department of Linguistics. The journal is open access (free of charge to both authors and consumers), and is currently electronic only (starting with no. 31).
