How to publish in this journal


The main focus of the Journal is on research done on language learning and teaching. We are in particular interested in research papers on L2 education (in particular EFL/ESL), in public and private contexts, in natural and classroom settings as well as in a variety of levels including school level, university level, institute level, etc. The Journal welcomes papers on teaching and learning any component of language, including skills and sub-skills, as well as teaching/learning translation, literature, etc. Research on the use of new technologies such as CALL and MALL for teaching/learning languages is also considered appropriate for this Journal. The focus of IJLTR is on research on language education, and papers not reporting research findings on language teaching/learning will not be considered. State-of-the-art papers by experts in the field are called for as long as explicit implications are drawn in favour of language teaching and learning. Reviews of recently published books on language education are also accepted for publication. Contributors are advised to consult the Journal office before doing/sending a book review.
