In view of the excessive number of submissions to the Language in (Dis) course since the end of 2016, which has prevented the flow of the works as foreseen by the journal's policy (limit of six months for processing); and considering that it is not allowed by the policy of the SciELO database to periodically cancel the receipt of papers, the editors have taken the decision, from that date until the regularization of the process, to restrict the submission to researchers with a doctorate.


They also request that the authors take care to verify that their work meets the scope of the journal. 


The editors further inform that the magazine will use, in addition to the traditional media, a specialized program of detection of plagiarism and self-plagiarism.
