Do such things exist? I have to think so but would have no idea about their names and publishers. Can anyone enlighten me?

A list of international open access journals is here. (http://www.doaj.org/doaj?func=subject&cpid=122). If it's grammar you're interested in take a look at Constructions (http://www.constructions-online.de/AimsAndScope), Snippets (http://www.ledonline.it/snippets/), and Functional Grammar (http://home.hum.uva.nl/fg/publications_papers.html) - each have their own approach.

Lots of interesting Journals are listed at Linguist List (http://www.linguistlist.org/pubs/journals/browse-journals.html). I don't have the time to go through them, but they do a good job summarising the focus of the journals. You may have to pay for these journals, though.

And here's (http://journalseek.net/ling.htm) a site that allows you to search for journals.

If you're just after titles or publishers' info, then an idea might be to try some academic libraries' websites. Certainly with our library you don't have to be a student to just search the catalogue. Our URL is http://eleanor.lib.gla.ac.uk/search/ then go to 'journals' and try searching by keyword. I just had a quick look and it returned over 100 results.

You probably have access to the online systems Project Muse and JStore via your local public library.

You don't say why you're looking for these journals?

MarkEsq - there are many journals, and quite a few have recent issues accessible on-line through Jstor and your neighborhood academic library. You received some useful links already. It would be much easier for us to help you if you could narrow your topic.

best of luck,
Rose
