Research on Language and Social Interaction is a journal devoted to research on naturally occurring social interaction. Published papers will ordinarily involve the analysis of audio or video recordings of social activities.

Communication scholars and those working in the areas of discourse analysis and conversation analysis are likely to be the most active contributors, but participation by researchers in any area who pursue the study of naturally occurring interaction is encouraged. The journal will also be open to theoretical pieces and experimental studies tied closely to the results of naturalistic observation. Papers submitted to the journal are subject to rigorous reviews by members of a distinguished editorial board and other well-qualified reviewers. The goal of the journal is to publish the best research in the area.
