We are delighted to announce that volume 2.1 of the international bi-annual journal Language and Law / Linguagem e Direito, the recently launched bilingual journal on Forensic Linguistics / Language and the Law, has just been published. This third issue of the journal includes articles written in English, as well as both book reviews and PhD articles written in English and in Portuguese. The contents list of the journal is reproduced at the end of this message.
The journal is in electronic form and available to download free, both from the journal website
and directly from the library of the University of Porto
The feedback on volumes 1.1 and 1.2 was extremely positive and, given the high quality of the articles published in this violume, we hope issue 2.1 also pleases our readers. As Language and Law / Linguagem e Direito has no printing costs, it can be extremely flexible to individual author’s requirements: not only can it publish quickly all the high quality articles it receives, but also it can cope with long appendices, reproduce illustrations, photographs and tables in colour, and embed sound files and hyperlink as necessary. The issues published so far are a clear illustration of this point.
We hope that this new issue, like previous ones, appeals - both visually and scientifically - to the increasing journal audience, and that it serves to encourage further submissions from researchers worldwide working in the areas of Forensic Linguistics and Language and Law wanting to share their research with the wider academic community through the pages of our journal. We recently published a call for papers for volumes 2.2, which will be published in January, as well as to a special volume on Legal Translation and Interpreting, to be published in July 2016. Your contriution is therefore very welcome.
Thank you very much for being part of this new journal.
