About The Journal, Its History And Editorial Board
A Few Words About
Esperantologio / Esperanto Studies (EES) is a peer-reviewed journal that promotes an interdisciplinary understanding of all phenomena related to Esperanto and Interlinguistics more broadly. It therefore welcomes original research on the linguistic, historical, literary, psychological, sociological, and political aspects of Esperanto. In addition to research articles and book reviews, EES also publishes more experimental manuscripts about ongoing research projects and selected contributions from the Conferences on Esperanto Studies. The journal publishes in Esperanto and English, but is open to contributions in other languages as well, as long as we manage to find reviewers who are able to assess materials in the concerned language. As part of EES’ commitment to multilingualism in academia, we particularly encourage the review of books originally published in languages other than Esperanto and English.
EES was founded in 1949 by Paul Neergaard. Under the name Esperantologio, the journal appeared irregularly until 1961. In 1999, it was revived as Esperantologio / Esperanto Studies by Christer Kiselman, who edited a total of eight journal issues until 2018. In 2019, its publisher became the Centre for Research and Documentation on World Language Problems (CED). Lingvaj Problemoj (CED).
Paul Neergaard, 1907–1987 – founding editor of EES, [Neergard’s Biography by Majorie Boulton is available at Esperantologio / Esperanto Studies 1999, No. 1]
