Aims and scope

The series covers Romance linguistics. This includes both studies in linguistics of the individual Romance languages (chiefly Catalan, French, Italian, Portuguese, Romanian, Spanish but also smaller speech communities and dialects) and studies in a comparative Romance perspective. The series is open to high-quality research from diverse theoretical backgrounds, and a synchronic or a diachronic perspective. Research published in the series should have a strong empirical footing while at the same time reflecting recent theoretical developments. The series invites the following kinds of publications:

  • monographs,
  • topical collective volumes


We invite volume proposals of approximately 5 A4 pages containing

  • the planned title,
  • overall content and aims of the book,
  • structure (i.e. chapter titles, or titles of papers and authors’ names if any),

Proposals will be evaluated by the series editors and by selected members of the editorial board, and/or external reviewers.


All books or papers included in them undergo a proper review process.

  • Monographs are reviewed by one of the editors / members of the editorial board and by an external reviewer.
  • With collective volumes, chapters will be reviewed separately. For every chapter, there should be two anonymous or open reviews; volume editors propose reviewers to the series' chief editors. They are also responsible for the reviewing process of every chapter and they should provide a report of that process containing the reviews and their overall judgment. (For further guidelines, see:

The chief editors reserve the right to make final approval.
