Nordisk tidskrift för socioonomastik / Nordic Journal of Socio-Onomastics

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. Articles can be submitted currently to:

Submissions must follow the Journal Style Sheet and are sent in two versions (the original version and an anonymized version). Articles can be written in English or any of the Scandinavian Languages (Danish, Norwegian, Swedish). All articles are published with an English abstract.

Submissions are initially reviewed by the editors, followed by a double-blind process with two independent and anonymous reviewers.
