Public Journal of Semiotics (PJOS) is a non-profit open access journal that publishes original research articles in semiotics: the systematic study of meaning, in different semiotic/communicative systems such as language, gestures, pictures, and music. We especially welcome articles combining theory and empirical findings in topics like polysemiotic communication, sensory modalities, and multimedia discourse. Our intention is to help make semiotics more relevant for current issues, and in this sense public.
