Welcome to Stellenbosch University

Stellenbosch Papers in Linguistics (Plus)

​​​​​​​The department is unique in South Africa in the sense that it publishes two peer-reviewed linguistics journals: Stellenbosch Papers in Linguistics (since 1978) and Stellenbosch Papers in Linguistics Plus​ (since 1980). Both journals are accredited by the National Department of Educa​tion, and were also the first journals to have been electronically published on the Stellenbosch Library Services SUNJournals Open Access hosting platform​

 
Stellenbosch Papers in Linguistics accepts submissions on all aspects of linguistics (both formal and applied), and Stellenbosch Papers in Linguistics Plus (i) focuses non-exclusively on linguistic topics that broadly have to do with Afrikaans, (ii) is used for the publication of monographs, and (iii) is often approached to serve as a vehicle for the publication of conference proceedings by a variety of institutions and departments with a linguistic connection. 

 
The two journals are increasingly the preferred forum for linguistic publications in South Africa.
