Call for papers: Spring 2018 Regular Issue

It is our pleasure to announce the next open call for submissions for the journal Dialogue and Discourse. Submissions are invited on all topics in the formal, computational, or psycholinguistic study of dialogue and discourse.

Submissions received by May 1, 2018 will be considered for Volume 9, issue 2 (second issue of 2018). Submissions received after this date will be considered for the next regular issue.
Dialogue and Discourse (D&D ) is the first peer-reviewed free open access journal dedicated exclusively to work that deals with language "beyond the sentence". The journal adopts an interdisciplinary perspective, accepting work from Linguistics, Computer Science, Psychology, Sociology, Philosophy, and other associated fields with an interest in formally, technically, empirically or experimentally rigorous approaches. We are committed to ensuring the highest editorial standards and rigorous peer-review of all submissions, while granting open access to all interested readers. D&D has published regular issues every year since 2010, and occasionally special issues on common topics.

In 2017 alone D&D published 15 papers; as of January 2018, D&D has published 64 papers, and the journal's h-index is 16. D&D is endorsed by SIGdial, SemDial, and AMLaP. D&D is indexed by Scopus and the European Reference Index for the Humanities and Social Sciences.

Submissions are made via the online submission system at

Authors are required to indicate if a submission is an extended version of one or more previously published conference paper(s); simultaneous submission to another venue is prohibited. Submissions will undergo rigorous peer-review with the aim of offering a first decision within four months. Once accepted and finalized, papers will appear online immediately, as part of the current issue.

Deadline for submissions: May 1, 2018
