Register Studies is a refereed journal devoted to the publication of empirical, methodological, and theoretical research on register and its relationship to all aspects of language use, variation, change, and learning. This journal provides a forum for the publication of high-quality studies related to:

  • spoken or written registers in any language or time period;
  • language variation across registers and detailed analyses of single registers;
  • diachronic linguistic change within or across registers;
  • language for specific purposes and English for academic purposes;
  • methodological approaches to the study of register;
  • text selection and corpus design issues for register studies;
  • theoretical models for understanding register;
  • the application of register analysis in language learning, teaching, and assessment.

Register Studies is highly interdisciplinary, welcoming scholarship on register from areas such as corpus linguistics, discourse analysis, sociolinguistics, applied linguistics, Systemic Functional Linguistics, language teaching, and computational linguistics. Research on English-language registers, analyses of registers in languages other than English, and cross-linguistic comparisons of registers are welcome. Register Studies regularly publishes reviews of books, corpora, and research tools focused on register research. All contributions undergo double-blind peer review.

Register Studies offers authors the option to publish articles as Open Access, click here for an example.
