Ampersand is an international, open-access journal "serving the breadth of the general and applied linguistics communities." Intended to serve a broad audience from researchers and practitioners to lay readers, the journal publishes articles that span many linguistic realms, including "applied and historical linguistics, phonetics, phonology, pragmatics, semantics, sociolinguistics and syntax." In addition to "traditional" articles, the journal also welcomes more casual pieces, such as blogs and book reviews. The home page tracks some of Ampersand's most popular pieces, including the Most Downloaded and Most Cited. To view all volumes and articles, readers should click the "View Articles" button on the left-hand panel. Here, readers can filter by volume, recency, or conduct a free-form search. First published in 2014, the journal currently has six issues with a seventh in production. Though the current issue is still in progress, several articles have already been released. These articles cover topics such as "English-Dutch code-switched structures," and "a case study of female-coded graffiti." Ampersand is managed by a group of editors and an editorial board from various global institutions and is published by ScienceDirect.
