InKoj. Interlingvistikaj Kajeroj. An Academic Journal of the University of Milan (Department of Philosophy) and CELE: Centre d'études linguistiques pour l'Europe. The peer-reviewed journal InKoj (Interlingvistikaj Kajeroj) aims at flling the need for a
place of academic discussion and study of themes related to planned and artifcial languages, including both logical-linguistical analyses of morpho-syntactical structures and lexicon generation, as well as from a thought-historical perspective, focusing on their underlying epistemological and ontological assumptions. It is a genuinely philosophical domain, as its analysis involves categorial taxonomies, formal logic, mystical or religious inspirations, political and artistic utopian projects. On the other hand, the feld's inherent inter-disciplinarity determines a structure as open as possible to contributions by researchers in other disciplines, from psychology to information sciences, from mathematics to linguistics. The journal will also qualify as a privileged setting to discuss projects related to the protection of linguistic parity through the implementation of
interlanguages, in plurilinguistic contexts such as the European Union.
