THE HISTORY OF LEXIKOS
Lexikos (Greek for "of or for words") is a journal for the lexicographical specialist and has been published by the Bureau of the WAT in the AFRILEX Series since 1991. In 1996 it became the mouthpiece of the African Association for Lexicography which is at present the joint publisher of Lexikos. Lexikos is the only journal in Africa which is exclusively devoted to lexicography. Articles may be written in Afrikaans, English, Dutch, German and French. Starting with Volume 21 (2011), Lexikos became an open access journal, freely available to all online readers. All back issues have been digitized, indexed and added to the archive.
LEXIKOS AS PUBLISH-AS-YOU-GO JOURNAL
As of 2020, Lexikos became a publish-as-you-go journal. This means that articles will be published as they are peer-reviewed and finalized throughout the given year.
