Periodicity. Henseforward we aim to publish a main issue a year, in October, and according to material and will special editions will be published.
Theoretically and empirically well-grounded papers are expected. Publications are not limited to the presentations of the annual conferences of Võro Institute. We look forward to all contributions from the different fields of the study of language and culture. The interdisciplinary and comparative angle is welcome.
In the main section the contributions of researchers of Finnic and other European small languages and cultures – linguists, scholars of literature, folklorists, archaeologists, ethnologists, and historians, and social scientists – are published.
In the section of essays the papers of popular interest, reviews and summaries are published.
Thematic numbers, monographies, and ad hoc studies are published as special editions.
Language. Publications of Võro Institute have been since the very beginning a multilingual publication. In addition to the Võro and Estonian languages articles in all Finnic languaes, and as an exception in other languages, are welcome. Each main edition is at least trilingual – the summary in the Võro language and in English will be always added to the original.
The papers are peer-reviewed. Each article is anonymously reviewed by two, in case of disagreement by three reviewers. The editor forwards the reviews to the author.
The submission deadline for papers is every year February 15. The timely papers are published after peer-reviewing and editing in the issue of the year, in October.
