Focus and Scope
This web journal is dedicated to publishing research in the fields of TESOL and Applied Linguistics. Its mission is two-fold: 1) to promote efficient dissemination of research, and 2) to facilitate academic exchange between the TESOL/ Applied Linguistics students/ faculty and members of the profession world-wide. Within a conceptual framework that values an integration of theory and practice, the journal publishes full-length articles dealing, in a principled way, with language, language acquisition, language teaching, and language assessment. The journal particularly welcomes submissions in the following areas: second language acquisition, second language assessment, sociolinguistics, pragmatics, discourse analysis, second language instruction and second language teacher education. Reviews of books in these areas are also welcomed.
The journal is published two times a year. All submissions will be reviewed by members of the Editorial Board or other referees whose decisions are based upon the relevance, clarity, and value of the articles.
