The journal "Slovo.ru: Baltic accent" is a quarterly peer-reviewed journal of the Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University. It publishes articles and reviews related to linguistics, philology, literature, and translation studies. The journal welcomes contributions on the analysis of different types of discourse, communication, dynamic processes of constructing and reconstructing meaning, linguistic theories and research methods from a broad range of areas of language science.
The main aim of the journal is to familiarize readers with the already existing concepts, to critically reflect on the current theory and practice of linguistic research and to stimulate debate between authors and a wider linguistic community.
The methodological basis of the journal is the unique experience of Russian linguistics and its significant contribution to world science. “Slovo.ru: Baltic accent” is the first and, so far, the only journal in Russia focusing on transdisciplinary and interdisciplinary linguistic, social, historical, and cultural research. Apart from regular multidisciplinary issues, the journal publishes thematic issues devoted to acute and debatable problems of linguistic research. It is an open platform for discussing prospects and potential growth points of knowledge in new paradigmatic dimensions of Russian and international language science.
The journal promotes international cooperation in research, uniting scientists from different countries, different fields of science and academic schools. The journal enhances research cooperation between academia of the Baltic region, which has long been a meeting place for languages and cultures.
