How to publish in this journal

Scope

The journal compares validity, consistency and efficacy of testing approaches and methods, and by analysing a wide variety of contextual elements such as cultural aspects, attitudes, students’ perceptions and motivation, it aims at exploring the applicability of language assessment methods in local contexts, examining new proposals and ideas, and actively contributing to the discussion about transparent and effective frameworks for language education in Asia. Offering evidence and reports in a scholarly and rigorous format, Language Testing in Asia will appeal not only to linguists, academics and researchers in the field of language assessment, but also to policy-makers, policy planners and administrators, school-leaders and trainers. We welcome essay submissions from anywhere in Asia that fit within these aims: as language assessment becomes more extensive and important worldwide, it is desirable that many voices from many cultures be heard. Areas of particular interest include research articles on any aspects of international proficiency tests such as IELTS, TOEFL and TOEIC, PTE-Academic and high stakes national tests of English or other languages as a second or foreign language. Classroom, school and university evaluation methods are also most welcome as are reviews or research on software and internet applications for assessing language skills.

SJR

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
