Gwerddon is a Welsh language academic e-journal.
Gwerddon is published electronically at least twice a year and includes scholarly research in the Arts, the Humanities and the Sciences.
Gwerddon’s editor is Dr Anwen Jones, Head of Theatre, Film and Television Studies at Aberystwyth University.
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 Research Excellence Framework (REF) and operates an independent appraisal system as well as maintaining the highest editorial standards.
Gwerddon is funded by the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol and a number of the Welsh higher education institutions are represented on the editorial board.
The first edition was published in April 2007.
