Guide for guest editors:

FLEKS – Scandinavian Journal of Intercultural Theory and Practice is a double-blind peer-reviewed, open access journal. The journal focuses on the following topics: intercultural communication, cross-cultural studies, intercultural educational science, psychology and philosophy, multicultural studies, professions in different societies, language, interpreting, translation, development studies, migration health, and diversity management.

FLEKS provides an academic platform for professionals and researchers to contribute innovative work in the field. It publishes original and full-length articles that reflect the latest research and developments in both the theoretical and the practical aspects of intercultural theory and practice.
