What is 'Gwerddon'?

Gwerddon is a Welsh-medium academic e-journal.

Gwerddon is published twice a year and issues include scholarly research in the Arts, the Humanities and the Sciences.

The journal has two main aims, which are to stimulate and encourage first-class academic discussion across as wide a range of subjects as possible through the medium of Welsh and thereby to create a store of scholarly material for the use of research students and academics.

Gwerddon conforms to the guidelines of the 2014 REF, creating work of an international standard which is peer reviewed.

The editor is Gwerddon yw Dr Anwen Jones, Head of the Theatre, Film and Television Studies Department at Aberystwyth University. She is assisted by the deputy editor, Dr Hywel Griffiths, and by an Editorial Board of 16 academics who represent a range of disciplines and Welsh universities. Mari Fflur and Dr Angharad Watkins are the editorial assistants.

Abstracts are provided in English for the benefit of those who aren’t fluent in Welsh. If you need additional help understanding unfamiliar terms, please refer to various websites such as Y Porth Termau or Y Termiadur Addysg.

Gwerddon welcomes original articles in Welsh. If you are learning Welsh and need additional support, then this can be provided. Please contact gwybodaeth@gwerddon.cymru to discuss further.

Gwerddon was first published in 2007. It is funded by the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol.
