The Laboratory for Ethnographic Approaches to the Study of Language (LESoL) is supervised by the Department of Social Anthropology and History of the University of the Aegean. The goal of LESoL is to support linguistic research in a social science environment through cultivation of an ethnographic orientation in data collection and analysis. LESoL aims at supporting teaching and research at undergraduate, graduate, doctoral, and post-doctoral level through the publication of working papers (in English and Greek), a specialized library, collaborations with other research centers and academic institutions at home and abroad, seminars, symposia, and a summer school. We hope to attract collaborators who focus on fields such as pragmatics, sociolinguistics, discourse analysis, conversation analysis and take a keen interest in contemporary linguistic landscape research.



The National Documentation Centre (www.ekt.gr) is a national infrastructure. Since 1980, it actively engages in the collection, organization and dissemination of scientific and technological information in Greece and internationally. EKT’s strategic priority is the aggregation, organized online dissemination and preservation of quality-assured scholarly and educational content in a single research infrastructure.

EKT’s vision is “Access to Knowledge”. To this end it implements Open Access policies in research, supports the transfer and dissemination of scientific knowledge, collaborates with research, education and cultural institutions for the aggregation, organization and dissemination of digital content and provides innovative services in scientific information.

EKT provides reliable ePublishing services as part of its scholarly content aggregation and dissemination activities . Its integrated online ePublishing environment is developed with open-source interoperable technology. This affords the incorporation of EKT’s infrastructures into the continuously developing international infrastructure environment.

EKT’s ePublishing services (http://epublishing.ekt.gr/) are directed to public and extended public institution publishers of accredited scholarly journals. They include, most significantly, the organization, documentation and organized dissemination of metadata and content of scholarly journals, the training and consulting services on issues such as intellectual property, the standardization of editorial processes according to internationally accepted standards, the inclusion of content and metadata in international content indexers and harvesters via interoperable systems.
