Association of Ghana. Beginning with Volume 2 (2013) it is published as an open access

The Editors welcome reports on research in progress and brief notices of research findings,

As of January of 2016, GJL switched from an email-based article submission process to
the use of website-based Open Journal Systems (OJS) software, which allows tracking of
submissions, double-blind reviews, copyediting, production, and publication. We
encourage linguists and scholars interested in linguistics to visit GJL’s website
https://gjl.laghana.org to peruse past issues and to submit their articles.
To submit an article, the author must create an account at GJL’s website. Upon account
creation, the author should complete all required information including the author’s full
name in the form it should appear in print, plus his/her current academic or professional
position, his/her field of research interest(s) and a short bio statement. Please see the inside
back cover of this issue for detailed article submission guidelines.
