: A year has passed...

Isogloss. Open journal of Romance Linguistics reopened its activity in September, 2020 with two new editors-in-chief and five associate editors. The aim of the new Isogloss was to publish articles in a timely fashion while at the same time keep ensuring the highest quality standards. It was decided that the journal would have no rewrite/revise and resubmit option, but only accept, accept with (minor) revisions, reject.

Since September 2020, we have handled 23 submissions, published 7 articles and 2 interviews. We got indexed in the DOAJ; we have one special issue (RLLT) in the pipeline.

We would like to thank the following people for their help and support with Isogloss in its first crucial months:

  • the associate editors: Alexandru Nicolae, María Carme Parafita Couto, Diego Pescarini, Anna Pineda and Michelle Sheehan for their hard work, and for the fun meetings!
