Policy

PRAGMATICS  is a peer-reviewed publication.
Reviewers are mainly, but not exclusively, members of the IPrA Consultation Board and members of the Editorial Board (see below).

Articles are indexed and/or abstracted in 

  • the MLA International Bibliography
  • (from volume 15, 2005) in Elsevier Bibliographic Databases
  • and ( from volume 18, 2008)  in ISI Web of Knowledge (Institute for Scientific Information, Thomsen):
    • Social Sciences Citation Index
    • Social Research
    • Arts and Humanities Citation Index
    • Journal Citation Reports / Social Sciences Edition

PRAGMATICS is the Association's quarterly publication. It is available to libraries and institutions, and it reaches all of IPrA's individual members (on average 1400) directly. A major advantage is that it also reaches a significant number of non-paying members directly in countries with serious currency restrictions, as a minor remedy against the information gap.

Four issues are published every calendar year, due in March, June, September, and December. Every annual volume counts roughly 600 pp. ISSN: 1018-2101. e-ISSN: 2406-4238.
