The aim of the Journal of Literary Semantics is to concentrate the endeavors of theoretical linguistics upon those texts traditionally classed as literary in the belief that such texts are a central not a peripheral concern of linguistics.The Journal of Literary Semantics founded by Trevor Eaton in 1972 and edited by him for thirty years has pioneered and encouraged research into the relations between linguistics and literature. It is widely read by theoretical and applied linguists narratologists poeticians philosophers and psycholinguists. JLS publishes articles on all aspects of literary semantics.The ambit is inclusive rather than doctrinaire. The journal publishes articles of a philosophical or theoretical nature that attempt to advance our understanding of the structures dynamics and significations of literary texts. This includes articles that relate the study of literature to other disciplines such as psychology neurophysiology mathematics and history as well as articles dealing with the educational problems inherent in the study of literature.

Impact Factor

Impact factor (IF) is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?

III. Other Science Influence Indicators

Any impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.
