JALT Journal

JALT Journal is the research journal of the Japan Association for Language Teaching. It is published semiannually, in May and November, with submissions accepted throughout the year. Papers are first screened by the Editor to ensure that submissions guidelines have been met and to determine whether the paper merits further independent review. Most importantly, submissions must meet the remit of JALT Journal which, as an applied research journal, is to link theory to practice. JALT Journal places a high premium on anonymous peer review. If a submission passes through the screening process, the paper is assigned to Editorial Advisory Board members and additional readers with specialization in the area of the submission. JALT Journal publishes both quantitative and qualitative research. Authors hoping to publish research in JALT Journal may submit in either Japanese or English.

Submitting authors should ensure that manuscripts:

  • meet the remit of JALT Journal
  • are written to the standard of good final copy with appropriate register, formatting and referencing
  • follow the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA), 6th Edition
  • include a Japanese abstract for English submissions and an English abstract for Japanese submissions

For more detailed information, please refer to the Submission Guidelines.
