Aims and Scope

Critical Approaches to Discourse Analysis across Disciplines is a free but formal, peer-reviewed electronic journal intended to provide a publishing platform for cross-disciplinary critical discourse research.

Critical Approaches to Discourse Analysis across Disciplines aims to promote all approaches to critical discourse research within the humanities and social sciences. The journal therefore welcomes papers from Critical Discourse Analysis as well as other 'critical' strands of Applied Linguistics, Communication Studies, Media Studies, Discursive Psychology, Sociology and Political Science.  

We publish papers which investigate, from a 'critical' perspective, contemporary discourse and genres in social, political, public and professional communication.  In this context, we are especially interested in papers which highlight and apply new or alternative theoretical and methedological frameworks for critical discourse research or which assess current methods and assumptions.

We are particularly keen to publish papers informed by contemporary programmes in Linguistics, including Cognitive Linguistics, Cognitive Pragmatics and Corpus Linguistics.

Book reviews

Critical Approaches to Discourse Analysis across Disciplines will publish book reviews. However, the journal will only publish evaluative rather than summarary reviews. We welcome reviews of any relevant monograph or collected volume.
