Text Recycling

Text recycling is defined by the Text Recycling Research Project as the reuse of identical or substantially equivalent text material in a new work, without any citation marks, by at least one author of the new work who is also the author of the previous work. Text recycling is a regular practice in scientific publishing. Authors often reuse their own unmodified text excerpts to ensure consistency and accuracy across different publications.

Publication as Curation

The decision to accept a manuscript for publication in Cadernos de Linguística will now become an initial act of curation on a paper that has already been published by the authors.

Think. Check. Submit.

Publishing the outputs of your research is an important stage of a scientific practice, as it promotes the dissemination of knowledge in your area and contributes to the progress of science. But with the amount of existing publications, how can you be sure if a particular journal is reliable? Think. Check. Submit., an initiative of organizations involved in the scientific communication process, helps researchers identify trusted journals and publishers. Through a variety of tools and resources, this international and cross-sectoral initiative aims to educate researchers, promote integrity and establish trust in scientific research and publishing.

Registered Reports

Registered Reports are a format of empirical article where a study proposal is reviewed before the research is undertaken. Pre-registered proposals that meet high scientific standards are then provisionally accepted before the outcomes are known, independently of the results.

Following an innovative tradition, Cadernos de Linguística launched a call for publication of Registered Reports. Read the full call here and submit your proposal!

InterAb 2023

Are you planning to present a paper at the Abralin's international conference, InterAb, which is scheduled to take place in 2023? CadLin is the official publication of papers presented at InterAb. If you are going to participate in InterAb and want to see your paper published in CadLin, you should be aware of some very important guidelines.

Proposal for a Theme Issue

Cadernos de Linguística, an open-access journal of the Brazilian Linguistics Association - Abralin, accepts proposals for theme issues on current and broad linguistics themes, guest-edited by leading authorities, and containing new research by prominent academics. Each issue seeks to produce an original and authoritative summary that highlights recent developments while also laying the groundwork for future research, applications, and policy decisions.


Reviewers are more than welcome to work with a colleague as a co-reviewer. A co-reviewer is a researcher, ofter more junior in their career, or a technician who evaluates an article alongside a more senior (invited) reviewer. It is a valuable learning experience that we are pleased to support when used properly.

Metrics for publishing are changing

The number of models used to assess the effect of journals and articles is growing all the time, while the majority are based on the number of citations and place a strong focus on the impact factor.

Lay Summary

Cadernos de Linguística will publish Lay Summaries.

A lay summary is a concise explanation of research presented in non-technical language to help non-scientific audiences understand the research's meaning. Lay summaries improve public comprehension of science, increase research visibility, enhance a researcher's reputation, and justify public research spending.

Linguistics Communication

CadLin invites everyone who participated in the Abralin em Cena 16 event on the popularization of Linguistics to contribute with texts on the popularization and dissemination of Linguistics.

Volume 2

The second volume of Cadernos de Linguística brings together four issues, each one with a collection of papers related to four different events organized by Abralin.
