Nordisk tidskrift för socioonomastik / Nordic Journal of Socio-Onomastics publishes scientific articles that discuss the role of proper names in society and social interaction. Names of all kinds are represented. The journal is interdisciplinary and welcome articles from any discipline. This allows authors to use a wide range of theories, methods and perspectives to analyse names as well as to combine different types of data. Purely theoretical contributions are also welcome. Although the journal focuses on Nordic perspectives, articles of Scandinavian or international interest from all over the world can be published.
The journal is published yearly by The Royal Gustavus Adolphus Academy in Sweden with either a thematic or an open volume. Deadline for submission of articles is 15 August (for the volume appearing the following year). Submissions must follow the Journal Style Sheet and are sent in two versions (the original version and an anonymized version) by email to: email@example.com Articles can be written in English or any of the Scandinavian Languages (Danish, Norwegian, Swedish). All articles are published with an English abstract.
Please note: The 2023 volume of NoSo will be a thematic one (with the theme "Representation and naming in socio-cultural discourses") and the next open volume will therefore appear in 2024, with a deadline for article submissions by 15th August 2023.
Submissions are initially reviewed by the editors, followed by a double-blind process with two independent and anonymous reviewers.
