The Journal of Home Language Research (JHLR) is an international double-blind peer-reviewed open access journal published by Uppsala University, Sweden. JHLR publishes original research from any part of the world in all areas related to the study of home languages, including but not limited to applied linguistics, theoretical linguistics, psychology, sociology and education. We define home languages as any languages that are not the majority language(s) of the context and are spoken in the family and/or community. Possible topics of interest include the following at individual, family and/or community level as they relate to home languages:
- Attitudes, beliefs and practices related to the intergenerational transmission of minority languages
- Language shift
- Language contact phenomena
- Language policy
- Language development
- Mother tongue/home language/community language education
- Strategies to promote bi/multi/polylingualism
- Challenges and opportunities for home language maintenance and development
- Educational policies and practices
JHLR accepts submissions at any time. Articles are made available as they become ready, with special calls for papers being added from time to time. The journal does not charge fees from authors or readers, and the published articles are licenced under the Creative Commons Attribution Licence.
JHLR is indexed in Ulrichsweb and Norwegian Register for Scientific Journals, Series and Publishers
