Basic Information

RLA, founded in 1963, is one of the oldest journals in the field of Chilean linguistics and has one of the most ample trajectories. It is published twice a year by the Spanish Department of the Arts and Humanities Faculty of the Universidad de Concepción and has as its main objective the fostering of theoretical and applied linguistic research in academic areas on both the national and international level. It is aimed at researchers, linguists, phonoaudiologists, academics and readers in general in both the national and international scientific communities (Latin America, Europe, USA).

The works appearing in RLA are unpublished manuscripts, preferentially written in Spanish or other languages such as English or Portuguese. The articles can come from the diverse areas of theoretical or applied linguistic research. For example, linguistics applied to foreign languages and the mother tongue, comparative linguistics, linguistics and computers, general linguistics, ethnolinguistics, psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, etc.

Evaluation of articles is carried out by external pairs, both national and international, using the double-blind procedure. They take into account aspects such as the originality of the research or manuscript and relevance for scientific knowledge in either theoretical or applied linguistics.
