ethical requirements for the submitted paper

All research or methodologies identified as being conducted or developed by the authors or institutions have in fact been so conducted or developed.

Relevant prior and existing research and methodologies will be properly identified and referenced using the standard bibliographic and scientific conventions.

All the content of the submitted paper shall be the original work of the authors and shall not plagiarize the work of others. Short quotes from the work of others should be properly referenced with full bibliographic details of the quoted work. To quote or copy text or illustrations beyond a ‘short quote‘ will require the author to obtain permission from the rights holder.

Duplicate submission of the same paper to more than one scholarly journal while the decision from another journal on that same paper is still pending is prohibited as well as reporting the same results in somewhat different form.

Authors should take care not to defame other researchers in a personal sense.

Co-authors should be properly and appropriately identified. To be identified as co-author, however, the participant should have contributed to the conception and design of the project, drafted substantial portions of the paper and taken responsibility for the analysis and conclusions of the paper. Other participants with less responsibility should be identified and acknowledged for their contributions.

policy on the use of AI tools

Estonian Academy Publishers has made the two following adjustments to its selection criteria to cover the use of AI by our authors: 

  • AI tools cannot be listed as an author.   
  • The use of AI tools, including the name of the tool and how it was used, should be disclosed in the text of the manuscript. This note could be in the Materials and Methods, a statement at the end of the manuscript, or another location that works best for the format of the manuscript.   

preprint policy

We accept manuscripts already posted to a preprint server but kindly ask you to make us aware of that in the covering letter. Please include a link to the preprint, and as appropriate, state how the manuscript has been adjusted/updated between deposition and submission.

archival policy

Digital copies of all issues and individual papers published in the Linguistica Uralica are deposited in the digital archive of the National Library of Estonia DIGAR.

article publication charges

The journal does not charge any submission nor publication fee from the authors. The open access fee is covered by the Estonian Academy of Sciences.
