The Scope of the Journal

Research on Language and Social Interaction publishes the highest quality empirical and theoretical research bearing on language as it is used in interaction.

Researchers in communication, discourse analysis, conversation analysis and ethnography are likely to be the most active contributors, but we welcome submission of articles from the broad range of interaction researchers. Published papers will normally involve the close analysis of naturally-occuring interaction. The journal is also open to theoretical essays, and to quantitative studies where these are tied closely to the results of naturalistic observation.

Please contact the editor at if you have questions concerning the appropriateness of a paper for the journal. Also, a free sample of ROLSI can be viewed at the Taylor & Francis site.
