Information for Contributors

All submissions must conform to JALT Journal Editorial Policy and Guidelines.

Editorial Policy

JALT Journal, the refereed research journal of the Japan Association for Language Teaching (Zenkoku Gogaku Kyoiku Gakkai), invites empirical and theoretical research articles and research reports on second and foreign language teaching and learning in Japanese contexts. Submissions from Asian and other international contexts are accepted if applicable to language teaching in Japan. Areas of particular interest include but are not limited to the following:

  • Curriculum design and teaching methods
  • Classroom-centered research
  • Intercultural studies
  • Testing and evaluation
  • Teacher training
  • Language learning and acquisition
  • Overviews of research and practice in related fields  

The editors encourage submissions in five categories: (a) full-length articles, (b) short research reports (Research Forum), (c) essays on language education framed in theory and supported by argumentation which may include either primary or secondary data (Perspectives), (d) comments on previously published JALT Journal articles (Point to Point), and (e) book and media reviews (Reviews). Articles should be written for a general audience of language educators; therefore, statistical techniques and specialized terms must be clearly explained.

Guidelines

JALT Journal has First World Publication Rights, as defined by International Copyright Conventions, for all manuscripts published. If accepted, the editors reserve the right to edit all copy for length, style, and clarity without prior notification to authors.
