k@ta is a refereed journal published twice a year in June and December by the English Department, Faculty of Letters, Petra Christian University, Surabaya, Indonesia. It presents articles on the study of language, literature and culture.

In the field of linguistics, it covers language issues researched in the branches of applied linguistics, such as sociolinguistics, discourse analysis, critical discourse analysis, pragmatics, stylistics, corpus linguistics and others. In the area of literature, it covers literature in English which may include written texts, movies and other media. Its overriding objective is to provide a forum for scholars and practitioners within any of the various subspecialties of the discipline to address a broad cross-section of the profession.

Appropriate subjects include, but not limited to, the dissemination of well-conceived analysis, research reports, studies, and application of theories or approaches (critical theory, cultural studies, rhetorics, and many others). No area is less welcome than any other, as long as the topic is of general interest within the profession.

This journal was first published in 1999 and was nationally accredited in 2002, 2005, 2008, and 2011. The online version with DOI number for each article is now available at http://kata.petra.ac.id and it can also be accessed from ProQuest e-journal (http://www.proquest.com).
