Litera - Journal of Language, Literature and Culture Studies is an international, peer-reviewed academic journal founded in 1954 by Istanbul University’s Department of Western Languages and Literatures. This journal is issued online and biannually (June & December). Litera publishes disciplinary and/or interdisciplinary, theoretical and/or applied research articles that focus on Western languages and literatures in the following fields: literary studies, linguistics, cultural studies, media studies, translation studies, and language teaching. The objective of Litera is to publish scientific articles that provide an intellectual platform for literary and cultural studies.

Our journal also offers book reviews of scientific books and news of national and international conferences that cover the fields mentioned above.  

Litera accepts articles written in one of the following languages: English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish.

The manuscripts should be formatted according to the 6th edition of the APA.
