Student journals

The Department of Nordic Studies and Linguistics is home to several student-run journals which publish articles by students and young scholars. 


CIRCD publications

CIRCD publications publishes peer-reviewed working papers and reports on current developments within the area of interaction and communication in institutional settings. It is targeted at researchers and students in academia. The editoral board is comprised of researchers from the Centre for Interaction Research and Communication Design at NorS.

Journal of Language Works - Sprogvidenskabeligt Studentertidsskrift

The journal is edited by PhD students and researchers from NorS and the School of Communication and Culture at Aarhus University. The Journal of Language Works publishes peer-reviewed articles written by BA and MA students at Danish universities. Articles are accepted from all disciplines of linguistics, including subjects from other languages. It aims to be a good debut journal for budding researchers, who wish to disseminate their work to other students and researchers at all levels. 

Logos - audiologopædisk tidsskrift

Logos is the magazine of the society for trained audiologists, Foreningen af Universitetsuddannede Audiologopæder. Students of audiologopedics at NorS are involved in the publishing of the journal.

NyS Nydanske Sprogstudier

NyS publishes peer-reviewed articles on language and linguistics on topics such as the newest research into the Danish language, development and language theory, traditional linguistics such as grammar and pragmatics and on language seen through the lenses of paedagogy, sociology, philosophy and psychology. NyS is therefore a forum for established researchers, but also very much a forum for up-and-coming researchers, as it also presents studies by students in higher education. NorS is currently (2017) represented on the editorial board by Tanya Karoli Christensen, Torben Juel Jensen and Jan Heegård Petersen.


SPINDET is an acronym of sprogpsykologisk information og debat [information and debate on psychology of language]. The journal is written by and for students interested in how we understand each other and why we sometimes don't. The editorial board is comprised of students of Psychology of Language, but students from all subjects are welcome to contribute.



Lapidar is the offspring of a creative writing course from 2016 at NorS, and it publishes short stories and prose by new and established authors. The editorial board currently (2017) consists of Danish student Ida Louise Nielsen (Editor-in-Chief), Film and Media Studies student Esther Elmholt (Editor-in-Chief), Assistant Professor at NorS Mads Bunch, author and former external lecturer at NorS Kristian Himmelstrup, author Niels Henning Falk Jensby, Modern Culture student Lea Tolstrup and Pedagogy student Sarah O'Neill. The journal aims to be a place for the new, strong voices of tomorrow. Other literary journals mainly publish flash fiction and poetry, and budding authors of short stories have therefore been lacking a forum in which to publish. 

Reception - Tidsskrift for nordisk litteratur 

The journal has existed since 1991 and is edited by students at NorS. It is the aim of Reception to support the exchange of good literature in the Nordic countries by focusing on publications from the entire Nordic area. Each issue casts a light on a wider range of Nordic literature through scholarly articles, interviews and short fictions written by students, researchers and authors. Reception is funded by Søren Gyldendal Fonden and Nordisk Kaffebar.
