Energeia is an open-access online journal for general linguistics, language theory and language philosophy, with a particular consideration of Romance linguistics. This journal was first published between 2009 and 2014. It is issued annually (resuming publication from 2021 onwards) and it is published at the University of Zurich

Energeia does not subscribe to any specific theoretical approach. However, we strongly encourage colleagues to submit contributions with a focus on one of the three main areas of interest: (1) Linguistics (2) Language Philosophy and  (3) History of Linguistics.

Journal's sections

Energeia generally is composed of three parts: the first presents unpublished original contributions; the second consists of reviews; and, the third of documentary work of several research projects such as the SNSF-project "Beyond Structuralism" - Letters to Eugenio Coseriu and the history of linguistics in he 20th century or the Research center Eugenio Coseriu / Eugenio Coseriu Archives at Tübingen University.
