Dictionaries: Journal of the Dictionary Society of North America

Vol. 1 (1979) through current issue

Dictionaries: The Journal of the Dictionary Society of North America is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes articles on all aspects of lexicography, as well as from areas of linguistic inquiry that relate to lexicography, and from the study of reference works in general as they bear on dictionary-making. The journal’s regular special sections include “Reference Works in Progress” and “Working Knowledge,” which report on and excerpt current lexicographical projects. A substantial portion of each year’s journal is devoted to reviews of recently published lexicons and lexicography websites, as well as to reviews of critical and historical studies of lexicography, and occasionally of biographies and popular literature related to dictionary-making, etymology, and similar topics.

Submission Guidelines

Dictionaries encourages submission of manuscripts for articles on all aspects of lexicography, as well as on areas of linguistic inquiry that relate to lexicography, and on the study of reference works in general as they bear on dictionary making. Within reason, length of manuscripts for regular articles is not a concern, and the Editor is open to proposals to dedicate a section of the journal to a theme. Manuscripts for the Reference Works in Progress section are by invitation of the Editor, but inquiries about and suggestions for that section are encouraged, as are inquires about special issues of the journal itself.

Manuscripts for review should contain an abstract and are accepted by electronic submission only in MS Word or Adobe PDF. All article submissions are reviewed anonymously by at least two referees. Submissions for publication in 2015 should be sent to the Editor, Edward Finegan (Finegan@USC.edu), by the end of February 2015. Reviews are overseen by the Reviews Editor and are by invitation only. Suggestions for books or websites to review are welcomed by the Reviews Editor, Wendalyn Nichols (wendalyn.nichols@gmail.com).

Because manuscripts will be distributed to referees electronically for anonymous review, indications of authorship should be removed from the text and from other identity-tracking files, such as Properties and Track Changes. After review, submissions will be assigned one of three categories: accepted with revision (minor or major), revise and resubmit (a request for a complete rewrite of an otherwise promising paper), or reject.

Authors are responsible for securing the rights for both print and electronic publication of any illustrations and other copyrighted material. If this obligation poses a financial or other hardship, please consult the Editor. Authors of accepted papers will be required to sign a publication agreement, a copy of which can be found on the DSNA website.

Manuscripts should adhere to the specifications given at the DSNA website: <www.dictionarysociety.com/dictionaries-style-sheet.html>.
