Roseta is a publication of the Brazilian Linguistics Association (ABRALIN), a non-profit academic organization. ABRALIN defends that scientific research carried out in academic centers should reach the general public, thus fulfilling its social objective: to promote critical thinking and dialogue between researchers and the community as a whole. In addition, ABRALIN shares the view that the popularization of science is an action of social inclusion: giving access to socially and economically excluded populations basic knowledge about science and its functioning, so that they can understand their environment, their opportunities and thus can act politically, with proper knowledge of the facts.
Roseta aims to disseminate academic studies in the area of Linguistics conducted in Brazil. It is not only a channel for researchers to share the results of their work – which often remain unjustly unknown – but especially for the national and international public to get to know what has been produced in Brazil in the area of Linguistics. The name of the magazine alludes to the Rosetta Stone, a fragment of a granodiorite stela of Ancient Egypt containing inscriptions in Greek, hieroglyphics and Demotic. The stone is now considered as a symbol of essential information in a field of knowledge.
The magazine accepts contributions from Brazilian researchers and postgraduate students. The articles should describe, in a didactic way and in a non-academic language, the results of published scientific papers.
