About

Peer review info

For more than 40 years, the Peter Lang Publishing Group has been committed to academic excellence in the humanities and social sciences. The high quality of our publishing portfolio is very important to us. Hence, all our manuscripts undergo a critical and rigorous peer-review assessment process prior to publication. These procedures may vary – open, blind, single blind, double blind -- according to accepted practices in academic fields, regions and/or series.

For Open Access Publications the following procedure applies:

All book proposals and manuscripts are submitted directly to either the editors of a series or to the Peter Lang acquisitions editors. Once accepted for consideration and cross-checked by anti-plagiarism software to ensure their originality, the author’s proposal and/or manuscript are sent for external review by internationally well-established experts in the relevant academic field(s) to assess its overall quality and scholarly relevance. A minimum of two independent peer reviews must be secured before a manuscript is accepted for Open-Access publication. Adhering to standardized procedures and following established codes of conduct (cf. for instance Peer review guidelines), all peer reviewers are required to submit a formal report. An anonymous summary of the reviewers’ feedback is sent to the authors.

Evaluation

The outcome of the review process is either

- Accepted; - accepted with (recommended) revisions; - accepted, if revised as indicated in review reports; - rejected

As compensation for their feedback, the Peter Lang Publishing Group offers all peer reviewers a selection from our publishing portfolio.

Abstract

<P>The author analyzes modern Russian history from a new perspective. Due to the ideological heritage of the XIXth and XXth centuries, the social settings of the sociopolitical history of the USSR (1917–1945) have not been fully identified. Detailed examination of ideological and political concepts shows that the revolution of 1917 became not a middle class, proletarian movement, but rather a plebeian one. The misjudgment by the new power enabled growth but caused tremendous losses of human lives and material damages. Socialization of economy and strict centralization led to a new social structure and established terror as an instrument for social reorganization. WWII revealed the necessity of a correction of these developments, but the events of the Cold War circumvented any further considerations.</P>

Abstract

Die seit 1887 mit Unterbrechung von 1912 - 1946 kontinuierlich erscheinenden "Pis'ma i bumagi" Peters des Großen sind nicht nur ein historisches sondern auch ein sprachliches Denkmal. Das umfangreiche Wortmaterial des inzwischen bis zum 12. Band (1712) gediehenen Werkes ist geeignet, Aufschlüsse über die in der sprachwissenschaftlichen Literatur wenig berücksichtigte Epoche der Wende vom 17. zum 18. Jahrhundert und des Anfangs des 18. Jahrhunderts zu geben.

Abstract

Diese Arbeit ist die erste monographische Darstellung der russischen absurden Literatur. Der Begriff des Absurden wird dabei philosophisch verstanden. Im Mittelpunkt stehen Werke der Leningrader Schriftsteller Daniil Charms und Aleksandr Vvedenskij - beide waren Mitglieder der Künstlergruppe "Obériu" - und Werke des Moskauer Schriftstellers Vladimir Kazakov. Die theoretische Basis der Arbeit bilden Untersuchungskriterien, die von der westlichen absurden Literatur, insbesondere von Samuel Becketts Drama "Warten auf Godot", abstrahiert sind.

Abstract

It seems as if the fundamentals of how we produce vowels and how they are acoustically represented have been clarified: we phonate and articulate. Using our vocal chords, we produce a vocal sound or noise which is then shaped into a specific vowel sound by the resonances of the pharyngeal, oral, and nasal cavities, that is, the vocal tract. Accordingly, the acoustic description of vowels relates to vowel-specific patterns of relative energy maxima in the sound spectra, known as patterns of formants. The intellectual and empirical reasoning presented in this treatise, however, gives rise to scepticism with respect to this understanding of the sound of the vowel. The reflections and materials presented provide reason to argue that, up to now, a comprehensible theory of the acoustics of the voice and of voiced speech sounds is lacking, and consequently, no satisfying understanding of vowels as an achievement and particular formal accomplishment of the voice exists. Thus, the question of the acoustics of the vowel—and with it the question of the acoustics of the voice itself—proves to be an unresolved fundamental problem.

Abstract

<P>Adult education has deep connections with employment contexts. This volume discusses interrelations within transnational contexts studied during the Würzburg Winter School on Comparative Studies in Adult Education and Lifelong Learning (COMPALL). The book shows that adult education and work contexts are influenced by international and transnational developments. The findings are presented in three chapters: Lifelong Learning Policies Targeting Employment Contexts; Transnational Perspectives on Lifelong Learning Policies; Employment Perspectives and Professionalisation in Adult Education.</P>
