Aims and Audience

IJLS is interested in contributions that focus on the relation between language and real-world problems. Articles submitted to the International Journal of Language Studies should represent outstanding scholarship and should make original contributions to the field of Applied Linguistics. Articles should be original, must be written in standard English, and should not include defamatory or libelous content.

IJLS invites contributions which critically reflect on current practices in applied linguistic research. It strives to advance scholarly and scientific discussion of issues that bring together or differentiate between scholars in applied linguistics. Contributions that handle applied linguistic problems in a principled way by reference to theoretical studies are of major interest for IJLS and authors are invited to submit contributions of this kind.

IJLS welcomes both reports of original research and conceptual articles. The Journal also accepts "State of the Art" papers. Unsolicited 'book reviews' and 'forum pieces' are not accepted for publication; prospective authors who wish to review a book for IJLS, or submit a forum piece, may want to directly contact the Editor in Chief.

Although occasionally papers of any length, if justified, will be published, manuscripts sent to IJLS should not exceed the following word limits; nevertheless, the editor(s) will retain discretion to publish papers beyond in length in cases where the clear and concise expression of the scientific content requires greater length.
