Scope and policy
Lenguaje welcomes unpublished works in all disciplines dealing with language, preferably the product of research, whether in the form of articles (final reports or research, essays, systematic work on an area, reviews of a particular problem, analysis of systematized educational experiences) or in the form of book reviews. All submitted articles are reviewed by the editorial committee in order to determine the relevance of it publication. Once approved by the Committee members, the article will be sent to two anonymous reviewers, one internal and another external to the Universidad del Valle. In case that a referee approves it and another one rejects it, a third one will be appointed. The Editorial Committee will select articles to be published, after examining the concepts of peers.
After volume 36(2), Lenguaje adopted the APA International Publication Norms.
