Using The Journal of Linguistic Geography
Transcript of Using The Journal of Linguistic Geography
The goal of the Journal of Linguistic Geography (JLG) is to open the flow of linguistic analysis using digital formats already available and familiar to users of online resources.
With this in mind, Cambridge Journals has worked with the Editors to develop a new template for presenting research in the field, as well as the data underlying that research.
Articles in JLG are meant to be seen and heard. Figures, maps and tables are not static, but are able to be manipulated by their users.
This guide explains how to navigate JLG, how its interactive features work, and where you can go if you need more information.
To view the JLG homepage, visit:
Click the buttons in the header to subscribe to JLG, submit an article or sign up for new content alerts.
The carousel features maps included in JLG articles. Clicking on the links below the map takes you to the article in which they are featured.
You can find information about the journal, as well as options to subscribe to or recommend the journal to your institution on the left hand side.
The tabs at the top of the homepage allow you to sort content by the Latest Issue and Back Issues, as well as the Most Downloaded or Most Cited articles.
Featured content is listed on the homepage. Clicking on these will take you to the article abstract.
Once you have found the article you require, click on the title to be taken to the article abstract...
...where you can click to view the article.
We recommend you view articles in HTML format, to benefit from the full range of features available.
