Constructions is a platinum open access journal with free online access to all contributions and no author processing fees. All submissions to the journal are subjected to a strict double-blind reviewing process. Constructions aims at a balanced representation of research within all current Construction Grammar models. One of the long-term goals is to establish contact between researchers from various perspectives. The term ‘construction’ as understood in this journal is deliberately chosen to have a broad extension and is not limited to any specific definition or specific constructional framework. Constructions is not restricted to any particular language or language family, and aims at combining theoretical, empirical, and applied issues.
