Focus and Scope
ELOPE: English Language Overseas Perspectives and Enquiries is a double-blind, peer-reviewed academic journal that publishes original research articles, studies and essays that address matters pertaining to the English language, literature, teaching and translation.
The journal promotes the discussion of linguistic and literary issues from theoretical and applied perspectives regardless of school of thought or methodology. Covering a wide range of issues and concerns, ELOPE aims to investigate and highlight the themes explored by contemporary scholars in the diverse fields of English studies.
ELOPE was launched in 2002, when the General Assembly of the Slovene Association for the Study of English (part of ESSE, the European Society for the Study of English) decided to establish a new academic journal. The first volume was published in 2004. Since then the journal has been published annually, in cooperation with the Department of English, Faculty of Arts, University of Ljubljana.
In 2015 ELOPE moved to a new publisher, namely Ljubljana University Press (Faculty of Arts, University of Ljubljana). The Slovene Association for the Study of English and the Department of English remain actively involved in the publication of the journal.
By 2018, more than 200 articles by scholars from 25 different countries have been published in the journal.
Publication and Access Policy
ELOPE is published twice a year, in June and in December. The journal provides immediate open access to the full-text of articles at no cost on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge. There is no Article Processing Fee charged to authors and articles are immediately available on the journal website once published.
Indexing and Abstracting
ELOPE has been listed in the MLA International Bibliography and is available through Google Scholar. ELOPE is also included in the ERIH PLUS database (the European Reference Index for the Humanities) and in the DOAJ directory (Directory of Open Access Journals). In 2017 ELOPE has been accepted for inclusion in SCOPUS.
