**** STOP PRESS **** (June 2010)

Gary (Motteram) is involved – as the editor for a special issue of the journal developing the coverage in the recent IATEFL Pre-Conference Event he co-ordinated -with this new journal which may be of interest to the more tech-oriented amongst you:

International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching (IJCALLT)
The mission of the International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching (IJCALLT) is to publish research that addresses the impact of information communication technologies in advancing foreign/second language learning and teaching. This journal expands on the principles, theories, design, and implementation of computer-assisted language learning programs. In addition to original research papers, this journal welcomes CALL-related book reviews and case studies.

Considering Submitting for a Journal? Then maybe one of the following journals will be of interest:



English Language Teacher Education and Development (ELTED)

This is an annual, peer-reviewed journal for the worldwide ELT community which is produced by the English Language Teacher Education and Development Research Group of the Centre for Applied Linguistics, University of Warwick. It seeks to provide a medium for the exchange of ideas and information on issues pertaining to English language teacher education and development. The journal is targeted at all those involved in English language teacher education and development worldwide, for whom, at present, there are few published journals dealing specifically with this interest area. All back issues are available for free at the following website: http://www.elted.net/


 The Journal of Linguistics and Language Teaching (JLLT)

This is a new venture (first issue being launched in 2010) designed for the worldwide publication of scientific findings, which concern the full range between linguistics on the one hand and language teaching on the other. At the same time, it is a basis of discussion for linguists and practitioners of language teaching.  The JLLT is a refereed journal: all manuscripts, apart from those having individually been requested by the editor, have to be positively evaluated by two referees, this procedure being totally anonymous on both sides (authors and referees). Only then will they be published.  Authors/readers will get: their articles published on a worldwide basis; a quick publication of manuscripts (if accepted, they will be online four weeks after submission); complete issues published in the PDF format and printable for any reader so as to get a full issue identical to a correspondent paper version; an experienced editor; and a high-ranking Editorial Board. 


 Open Education 

This is an online journal for articles and other pieces about distance and open education and educational technology. It’s the journal of the Hellenic Network for Open and Distance Education for our long time collaborators at the Hellenic Open University in Greece. They are keen for submissions in these fields from outside the Greek educational sphere.


 Research Papers in Language Teaching and Learning

Elsewhere in this LTE blog, the long-standing links between Manchester’s MA TESOL programme and the Hellenic Open University’s comparable programme have been mentioned. The HOU TESOL team have now launched their online journal celebrating the contributions being made by their students, tutors, and collaborators. Quite a bit is in Greek but by no means all of it. The Editor, Nicos Sifakis – a researcher that I collaborate with extensively – says they would welcome submissions from MA participants and LTE colleagues.
