The Matica Srpska Journal of Philology and Linguistics was first published in 1957. Until 1984 it was published as Zbornik za filologiju i lingvistiku (Journal of Philology and Linguistics). It features original and clear scientific papers, scientific criticism, as well as chronicles and bibliographies in the field of philological and linguistic studies. Open thematically and disciplinarily, the Journal publishes works in general linguistics, historical, typological and comparative linguistics, etymology, dialectology, contact and contrastive linguistics, onomastics and the like. The focus of the Journal are topics related to Slavic issues, especially ones related to the Serbian language in synchronic and diachronic perspective, standardized language and literary idioms in the past, as well as dialects of the Serbian language.

The goal of the Journal is to promote research based on thorough analysis of the relevant corpus with theoretical insight into issues, thus promoting a combination of traditional Philology and Linguistics. The Journal also supports dialogue between different theoretical and methodological approaches to research of language, as well as between philological tradition and contemporary theories.

The Journal is on the European ERIH (European Reference Index for the Humanities) reference list of journals and the Serbian Citation Index. Selected abstracts are published in Linguistic Abstracts (Wiley-Blackwell, Oxford). It is published in two volumes annually. Papers are published in Serbian and other Slavic languages, as well as in English, German and French.
