Editorial Policies

Focus and Scope

FULL seeks to provide a platform for the lingusitics of modern and/or older Finno-Ugric/Uralic languages and dialects. It welcomes manuscripts from all the main branches of linguistics, including phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics, as well as from first language acquisition and psycholinguistics. Both theoretical and empirical contributions are invited. Submissions offering a cross-linguistic comparison involving languages within the language family or languages from inside and outside the family, and contributions shedding light on issues in Finno-Ugric linguistics through a careful analysis of data from one Finno-Ugric language are both welcomed. Papers conceived in any formal approach to linguistics that facilitates explicit discussions are welcome.

Peer Review Process

Each research paper is sent to at least two external peer-reviewers. This process is double blind peer-review as neither the author(s) not the reviewers are named. The editors will also write a report in coordination with the outside evaluations received.

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.



This journal utilizes the LOCKSS system to create a distributed archiving system among participating libraries and permits those libraries to create permanent archives of the journal for purposes of preservation and restoration. More...
