What is CLOG?

Clò Gàidhlig Oilthigh Ghlaschu (CLOG) is the Open Access publishing initiative of the University of Glasgow’s subject area Celtic and Gaelic.

Founded in 2020, CLOG’s aim is to provide free, unrestricted, online access to scholarly and other writing in and about Gaelic – the language and its literature, and its social, cultural, and historical context.

CLOG publishes two peer-reviewed academic journals: Aiste. Rannsachadh air Litreachas Gàidhlig / Studies in Gaelic Literature, and Journal of Scottish Name Studies.

CLOG also publishes new peer-reviewed academic monographs in or about Gaelic.

Between 1965 and 2020, the University of Glasgow’s Department of Celtic published 29 books in or about Gaelic. This included original works of poetry and prose fiction, as well as educational materials and, latterly, academic research. Most of these books are now out-of-print. Where copyright and other considerations allow, it is intended to make these available through CLOG.

In addition, CLOG acts as a portal to further Gaelic and Gaelic-related research at the University of Glasgow. This includes:

DASG: Digital Archive of Scottish Gaelic

a suite of onomastics databases

PhD and research Masters theses awarded by the University of Glasgow on Gaelic and Gaelic-related topics

Sgeul na Gàidhlig aig Oilthigh Ghlaschu / The Gaelic story at the University of Glasgow.
