Diffondiamo la seguente comunicazione pervenuta dal team editoriale del Languages, Society & Policy Journal:


Dear colleagues,
 
we would like to draw your attention to the new online and open-access Languages, Society and Policy Journalwhich aims to connect research in languages and linguistics with policy through publishing  the latest academic peer-reviewed research in jargon-free, short and accessible papers. Edited by a multidisciplinary team, LSP is a unique online resource for policy-makers, journalists and stakeholders in education, health and business. The journal is part of MEITS, a flagship AHRC-funded project aiming to revitalise Modern Languages and shape UK language policy by showing how multilingualism can empower individuals and transform societies. 
 
We welcome submissions from researchers in linguistics, modern languages, cultural studies, neuroscience and education. 
Decisions are reached within 6 weeks of submission and publication is expected no later than 12 weeks after submission to ensure relevant papers can contribute to current policy debates.
