Author Guidelines

Articles submitted to the journal should normally be no longer than 8,000 words (including notes, appendices, tables, and references). Each paper must begin with an abstract not exceeding 200 words. No information that identifies the author should be included in the paper. A separate title page should be provided, with the following information: title, the author's name, affiliation, address, e-mail address and both a daytime and an evening telephone number. Contributors may submit their papers in either of two ways. Three printed copies (double-spaced throughout) or an electronic version of the initial submission should be sent/e-mailed to: Professor Hansun Waring, TESOL/AL Web Journal Teachers College, Columbia University Box 66 525 West 120th Street New York, NY 10027 E-Mail: tcwebjournal@tc.columbia.edu Authors should keep a copy of the manuscript, as the original will not be returned. Manuscripts submitted should follow APA format. Works referred to should be separately listed at the end of the article. For electronic reference formats, see http://www.apastyle.org. Questions concerning submission can be directed to Catherine Box, Editor (tcwebjournal@tc.columbia.edu).

 

Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  1. The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  2. The submission file is in Microsoft Word document file (.doc or .docx) format.
  3. The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  4. The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines, which is found in About the Journal.
  5. The text, if submitted to a peer-reviewed section (e.g., Articles, Book Reviews), has had the authors' names removed. If an author is cited, "Author" and year are used in the bibliography and footnotes, instead of author's name, paper title, etc. The author's name has also been removed from the document's Properties, which in Microsoft Word is found in the File menu.
