ISSN 3033-0440 (online)

The journal Contrastive Linguistics (Сопоставительно языкознание) is an organ of the Faculty of Slavic Studies and the Faculty of Classical and Modern Philology of Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski”, Sofia, Bulgaria.

The journal Comparative Linguistics is included in the following bibliographic databases (http://www.blldb-online.de). It is also included in Ulrich’s Serials Analysis System. Our aspiration is for the journal to be referenced in other prestigious world databases as well.

The journal publishes articles, discussions, chronicles, reviews, bibliographies, etc. devoted to contrastive and comparative linguistics, theoretical problems of general linguistics, problems of language contact, the theory and practice of translation, chronicles of scientific events in the field of linguistics, as well as reviews of publications from all areas of linguistics; as well as thematic and personal bibliographies.

Articles in Bulgarian, Russian, English, German, French, Italian and Spanish are accepted for publication. Each article is assessed by at least two independent anonymous reviewers. Articles, discussions, reviews, etc. published or under consideration in other publishing venues are not accepted.

The journal’s mission is to ensure the regularity of the publication of the individual issues, high quality of the published materials and significance of the texts in the scientific field to which they belong.

The editorial board is responsible for each issue and every decision on publishing a manuscript and has the final say on the quality of reviews. The Board’s decisions are based exclusively on the scientific merits of the submitted texts regardless of race, gender, ethnic origin, religion, political, administrative, institutional or social affiliations. The decision to publish manuscripts is made by the Editorial Board without any external influence. The Editorial Board is an independent body.

As of 2024 two volumes of the journal are published yearly. The first issue is published in May – June, while the second issue in November – December.

The journal has its own website https://contrastive-ling.com/ which has a link to a platform where manuscripts and anonymous reviews are uploaded.

Each volume of the journal appears as a paper edition and is also published in electronic format on the journal’s website. The journal’s website contains information about the Editorial Board and the Editorial Council, guidelines for authors and important declarations. An archive with the volumes of the journal can also be accessed from the site. The publishing ethics for editors, reviewers and authors are also published on the website. The reviewing and publishing procedures are also available on the website.
