Aims and Scope

Current Issues in Bilingualism (CIB) is an open-access outlet for cutting-edge research on individual and societal bilingualism (‘bilingualism’ is broadly understood as an umbrella term covering linguistic abilities in more than one language). The scope of the series includes both theoretical and empirical studies on linguistic aspects of bilingualism as well as studies on cognitive, educational, affective, and social aspects of speakers' bilinguality. The series thus aims to be inclusive, bringing together the different strands of bilingualism research. CIB will not publish studies in the field of language contact, which could be submitted to the Language Science Press ‘Contact and Multilingualism’ (CAM) series instead.


We invite proposals for both monographs and edited volumes comprising:

  • the proposed title,
  • a description of the overall content and aims of the volume,
  • an overview of the volume’s structure (i.e. chapter titles, or titles of papers and authors’ names if any),
  • for monographs, a short description of each chapter (100 words max. per chapter)
  • for edited volumes, short abstracts of each contribution (100 words max. per contribution) and details of how you plan to ensure a satisfactory level of reviewing (see the general Language Science Press proofreading guidelines and indicate which process you would prefer).
  • Your proposal will first be discussed by the editors of the series. If accepted, the proposal proceeds to a full manuscript, which will then be assessed by at least two other reviewers.


Contributions are welcome in English, German and Spanish.
