Calidoscópio - Call for papers

Calidoscópio is a peer-reviewed journal linked to Unisinos Graduate
Program in Applied Linguistics. It was launched in 2003 with the aim of
publishing a wide range of papers within the field of applied linguistics.
Both the journal and the graduate program embrace the perspective that it
is possible to produce new interpretations and different proposals about
language use resulting from various combinations of theoretical and
methodological options, much like a kaleidoscope.

Since 2009 Calidoscópio has been included in the Arts & Humanities
Citation Index (Web of Science) and the Social Sciences Citation Index
(Web of Science).

The journal is published quarterly. Each issue covers materials related to
one of the research lines of the Graduate Program in Applied Linguistics,
as described below.

The first issue of 2010 is dedicated to the research addressing “Language
and School Practices”. The deadline for submission of articles is January
30th 2010.

The second issue of 2010, is dedicated to the research on “Interaction and
Discursive Practices”.  We encourage the academic community to submit
articles by May 5th 2010.

The third issue of 2010 will be dedicated to research on “Text, Lexis, and
Technology”, and the articles must be submitted by July 31st 2010.
Particularly in this line, we also welcome contributions and studies on
Rhetorical Structure Theory (RST) from Linguistics and Computer Science
perspectives, including researches on (but not limited to) text analysis,
text generation, corpus investigations, text prototypes study, discourse
knowledge acquisition, speech analysis, and applications on summarization,
translation, information retrieval and extraction, among other topics.

to the Graduate Program in Applied Linguistics are available at:
