Alphabet is an open-access, biannual journal aimed at advancing and disseminating the state-of-the-art knowledge on language, literary and cultural studies. It instills the etymological spirit of the word alphabetos, which means learning or lore acquired through reading. Reading, in this context, shall be understood as a process of critically examining or questioning the existing ideas and issues to offer alternative answers. In choosing articles for publication, Alphabet prefers manuscripts that present new ideas in the disciplines, originated from empirical, theoretical, and methodological research within both a single discipline and those that sub- or multi-disciplines. It encourages a high standard of scholarship, written in clear and straightforward organization.
