BAJ is an open-access, peer-reviewed academic yearly appearing regularly since 2000. Initially a journal publishing works by Białystok-based linguists, BAJ expanded its scope to reach the national level. Now a forum for scholars specialising primarily in Polish Studies, BAJ provides an academic platform for linguists to present their research findings, exchange ideas, share experiences and research results, explore opportunities for collaboration and recognize outstanding achievements within their scientific community. Although the journal’s main focus in on Polish Studies and Polish linguistics, BAJ also welcomes contributions from various subdisciplines of linguistic studies, to be published in special issues. To enhance the international impact, BAJ also appears online in its electronic version. The journal is indexed in the following databases: ERIH PLUS, ICI Journals Master, CEEOL, CEJSH, EBSCO ULTIMATE, Google Scholar Citations, and PBN.
