We seek proposals that address a research topic that will be of interest and relevance to the journal’s international readership of language learning scholars. We are especially interested in special issue themes that will highlight work in areas of inquiry, theoretical approaches, and methodological tools in language learning that are underrepresented and/ｏｒ represent cutting-edge developments in the wider interdisciplinary field of language learning.
The special issue will bring together seven to nine original contributions of standard article length (10,000 words including references, tables, and figures) and will be accompanied by an introduction written by the guest editor(s). See an example here.
It is envisaged that guest editors would directly invite their contributors. However, they might also want to put out a ‘rapid-response’ open ｃａｌｌ, to ensure that they are gathering the best of the relevant field.
1.A general description of the issue and its potential contribution to the field (maximum 800 words);
2.A list of contributors and article abstracts (300-400 words each);
3.The name(s) and qualifications of the guest editor(s), including relevant editing experience (maximum 300 words per editor).
