New scientific journal for socio-onomastic research

A new scientific journal has been founded by members of the research network New trends in Nordic Socio-onomastics:

Nordisk tidskrift för socioonomastik / Nordic Journal of Socio-Onomastics!

The first volume of the journal, which is published by The Royal Gustavus Adolphus Academy in Sweden, will be available in spring 2021 and possible to access online via the journal website. The first volume open for submission is planned for spring 2022.

The Nordic Journal of Socio-Onomastics will publish peer-reviewed scientific articles that discuss the role of proper names in society and social interaction. 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. The analyses may consider any kind of proper names, and although the journal focuses on Nordic perspectives, articles of Scandinavian or international interest from all over the world are welcome. The journal has an international and multidisciplinary advisory board, with members from different disciplines and different parts of the world.

Articles can be written in English or any of the Scandinavian Languages (Danish, Norwegian, Swedish). All articles are published with an English abstract. If you are interested in submitting, please note the instructions on the journal website.
