About Glossa Psycholinguistics

Aims and Scope

Glossa Psycholinguistics  publishes contributions to the field of psycholinguistics in the broad sense. Articles in Glossa Psycholinguistics combine empirical and theoretical perspectives to illuminate our understanding of the nature of language. Submissions from all fields and theoretical perspectives on any psycholinguistic topic are appropriate, as are submissions focusing on any level of linguistic analysis (sounds, words, sentences, etc.) or population (adults, children, multilingual language users, late learners, etc.). Methods and approaches include experimentation, computational modeling, corpus analyses, cognitive neuroscience and others.  Glossa Psycholinguistics publishes methodological articles when those articles make the theoretical implications of the methodological advances clear. Contributions should be of interest to psycholinguists and other scholars interested in language.

Publication Frequency

The journal is published online as a continuous volume and issue throughout the year. Articles are made available as soon as they are ready to ensure that there are no unnecessary delays in getting content publicly available. Special collections of articles are welcomed and will be published as part of the normal issue, but also within a separate collection page.

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge. There is no embargo on the journal’s publications. Authors of articles published remain the copyright holders and grant third parties the right to use, reproduce, and share the article according to the Creative Commons license agreement. The journal does not restrict authors’ posting of preprint versions of their papers.

Open Data Policy

Glossa Psycholinguistics endorses open science practices. Therefore, authors are required to make all data, stimuli, and data analysis scripts associated with their submission openly available at the time of submission, according to the FAIR principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable). Authors should ensure data are de-identified to protect privacy and confidentiality. Materials provided should be sufficient to allow analyses to be reproduced but need not go beyond (i.e., it is not necessary to make materials usable for subsequent analyses that go beyond the scope of the submission). Exceptions to this policy will be considered on a case by case basis, but authors should be aware that failure to provide data and code may make selection of reviewers more difficult.

Data and code should be deposited in a repository such as the Open Science Framework or Dryad which has a sustainability model and an open license agreement that permits unrestricted access (e.g., CC0, CC-BY), and which generates a unique and permanent DOI for the deposited files. More restrictive licenses should be used only given a valid reason (e.g. legal requirements). The data and code files must be in an open, nonproprietary format and clearly labeled for use by a third party so analyses reported in the submission can be straightforwardly reproduced. All submitted papers will include a Data Accessibility Statement, which will be made public upon publication. The Statement will provide the repository URL link for the data and code or will state that data and code are not being made available.

Peer Review

To minimize bias, the journal uses double-masked peer review. All submissions should be stripped of any identifying information (see tips under "For Authors"). Authors anticipating a submission to the journal should refrain from aggressively advertising any preprint version of the paper until the review process for the submission is complete. Reviewers should treat submissions as anonymous and inform the handling editor if they are for any reason familiar with the paper's authorship. Reviewers are free to identify themselves or to remain anonymous. All submissions will be handled either by one of the Editors-in-Chief or one of the Associate Editors.

Publication data

All papers within the journal are assigned a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) at the time of publication. Supplementary materials may be assigned a separate DOI.

Annotation and post-publication comment

The journal platform includes in-browser annotation and text highlighting options on full text formats via Readers will require a account to create annotations, and will have the option to make these publicly available, available to a group, or private.

Advertisement policy

The journal does not host advertisements on the website.
