The Journal of Portuguese Linguistics is concerned with all branches of linguistics and aims at publishing high-quality papers in the field of Portuguese linguistics, including the comparison between any varieties of Portuguese and any other language(s).

Papers are selected for publication solely on the basis of scientific quality. The language of publication is English.
The journal is read by anyone interested in linguistics, especially in Portuguese linguistics in a broad sense (any variety of Portuguese, Portuguese-based Creole languages, Iberian languages, cross-language/variety comparisons): academic researchers, institutional libraries, students, and professionals in areas in which Portuguese linguistics may play a role.
With the goal of being a platform for discussion in the field, the Journal of Portuguese Linguistics welcomes papers, book reviews and dissertations abstracts in areas such as the European, Brazilian, and African varieties of Portuguese, Portuguese in Asia, Portuguese-based Creole languages, Iberian languages, and language acquisition, variation, contact and change. The broadening of the journal's scope is reflected by the composition of the board of consulting editors. Initiatives for thematic issues with guest editors are particularly welcome.
