Scope/Description:

The journal Metaphor and the Social World aims to provide a forum for researchers to share with each other and with potential research users work that explores aspects of metaphor and the social world. The term social world signals the importance given to context of metaphor use to connections e.g. across social cognitive and discourse dimensions of metaphor use and to communication between individuals or across social groups. The journal is not restricted to a single disciplinary or theoretical framework but welcomes papers based in a range of theoretical approaches to metaphor including discourse and cognitive linguistic approaches provided that the theory adequately supports the empirical work. Metaphor may be dealt with as either a matter of language or of thought or of both what matters is that consideration is given to the social and discourse contexts in which metaphor is found. Furthermore metaphor is broadly interpreted and articles are welcomed on metonymy and other types of figurative language. A further aim is to encourage the development of highquality research methodology using metaphor as an investigative tool and for investigating the nature of metaphor use for example multimodal discourse analytic or corpus linguistic approaches to metaphor data. The journal publishes various types of articles including reports of empirical studies key articles accompanied by short responses reviews and metaanalyses with commentaries. The Forum section publishes short responses to papers or current issues.

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.
