Journal of Chinese Linguistics (JCL) is an academic journal mainly in English, which comprises research content from both general linguistics and Chinese linguistics (Languages in China). It is edited by a distinguished editorial board of international expertise. There are two publications: Journal of Chinese Linguistics (JCL) and Journal of Chinese Linguistics Monograph Series (JCLMS).

JCL and JCLMS articles published from 1973 to present have covered many linguistic sub-disciplines of the languages in China (JCL vision, 1973). The authors explore a variety of general linguistic areas such as phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics. The articles published are also inter-disciplinary across with other academic disciplines such as applied linguistics, historical linguistics, computational linguistics, psycholinquistics, sociolinguistics, neaurolinguistics, evolutionary linguistics and more. Moreover, authors have investigated languages in contact, language change, language families, and Chinese writing systems, as well. The factors of history, culture, psychology, politics and social changes have also been intuitively blended in with scientific research processes in the papers. Research methods include experimental, comparative, as well as historical document review, linguistic reconstruction and many case studies. The research endeavors, conducted by scientific research methods, publish their results in JCL with abstracts in both English and Chinese languages.

For more than 40 years, the Journal has proved itself to be a publication to encourage scholarly communication for advancing knowledge in the field of Chinese Linguistics (Languages in China) with vision, history, results, and innovative spirit. JCL’s effort to serve international scholarly community in its field is attested by its inclusion by

  • Linguistics and Language Behavior Abstract
  • Linguistic Abstract online
  • Modern Language Association Directory of Periodicals
  • Modern Language International Bibliography
  • Bibliography of Asian Studies
  • Social Science Citation Index (SSCI)
  • Arts & Humanities Citation Index(A&HCI)
  • European Reference Index for Humanities
  • Scopus Database

We welcome scholars whose quality research involves issues in the theory of language and in exploration and description of Chinese languages to contribute research with original discoveries to JCL for inspiration of international scholarly communication.
