The JLTL is indexed in ERIH PLUS!

The JLTL is now indexed in ERIH Plus, European Reference Index For The Humanities and Social Sciences (https://dbh.nsd.uib.no/publiseringskanaler/erihplus/). We are proud not only to prove the scholarly quality of the JLTL but also to disseminate the articles published in the JLTL across the EU and the wider academia.

The European Reference Index for the Humanities and the Social Sciences (ERIH PLUS) was created and developed by European researchers under the coordination of the Standing Committee for the Humanities (SCH) of the European Science Foundation (ESF). The ERIH lists, which initially covered only humanities disciplines, were first published by ESF in 2008, while revised lists were made available in 2011-2012. In 2014, responsibility for the maintenance and operation of ERIH was transferred to the Norwegian Social Science Data Services (NSD). The reference index at NSD is called ERIH PLUS in order to indicate that it has been extended to include the social sciences.
