The Journal of Estonian and Finno-Ugric Linguistics (ESUKA – JEFUL) publishes linguistic articles and large-scale studies on Estonian and other Finno-Ugric languages, as well as special theme issues. Papers on general linguistics are published only when they draw on data from Estonian or other Finno-Ugric languages or when the treatment is important for the study of Estonian and other Finno-Ugric languages. The journal is open to contributions from anyone who may wish to submit. The only criterion for publication is the quality of the submission, which is decided on the basis of blind peer review (the names of the author and reviewer are both kept anonymous). The journal has an international advisory board, which includes neither the editor-in-chief nor the other members of the editorial board. The journal aims to stimulate the study of the Estonian and other Finno-Ugric languages and to raise the standards of research for the discipline as a whole.
Papers published in ESUKA – JEFUL must meet certain criteria relating to audience, technical content, and presentation.
The following form is designated to help reviewers evaluate manuscripts submitted to ESUKA – JEFUL. If revisions are recommended, reviewers should be as specific as possible in describing changes and should indicate which changes are recommended and which are obligatory. If a paper is rejected because it is outside the scope of the journal, reviewers are requested to recommend that the paper be submitted elsewhere. If a paper is considered unpublishable, reviewers should reject it completely.
Please look at the manuscript soon after receiving it and return the review as soon as possible (but no later than 4 weeks after receiving the paper).
Please return the review to:

ESUKA – JEFUL Editor
E-mail: Urmas.Sutrop@eki.ee

In the case of special issues please send the review to the guest editor.

Note on reviewer confidentiality. The editors of ESUKA – JEFUL never disclose the names of reviewers to authors. Reviewers should regard a submitted manuscript as a confidential document. They should not use or disclose unpublished information in a manuscript except with the permission of author(s). Since there is no direct communication between author(s) and reviewer(s) concerning a manuscript, that permission can only be obtained via the Editors.
