NYS TESOL Journal
Call For Papers
Accepting Submissions on a Rolling Basis
The NYS TESOL Journal is the official journal of the New York Association of Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (NYS TESOL). It is a refereed academic journal published biannually each winter and summer. Articles in the NYS TESOL Journal focus on theory, research, pedagogy, and educational policy related to the teaching of English to speakers of other languages, including U.S.-born bilinguals, ''generation 1.5'' students, immigrants, and international students. Articles may focus on any educational level, from kindergarten to university, as well as on adult school and workplace literacy settings.
1. Feature articles (20-25 pages inclusive of references, tables, and figures):
These articles focus on theory, research, pedagogy, and/or educational policy. Feature articles should show evidence of rigorous scholarship, make an original contribution to the field of education, contain ample references, and provide readers with insights relevant to TESOL learning and teaching. Feature articles should be driven by pedagogical problems and research questions that address those problems. We welcome all methodological research paradigms; in all cases we ask authors to keep the literature review and methods sections succinct and emphasize the findings and the applications of those findings to pedagogical issues. Articles that contain statistical analysis must be accessible to a general audience of educators. All submissions are blind peer reviewed.
2. Brief reports (8-10 pages inclusive of references, tables, and figures):
These articles are briefer and less formal than feature articles. Based on current or emergent trends in the field of TESOL, brief reports include (a) pilot studies, (b) research in progress, (c) action research, or (d) policy briefs. All submissions are blind peer reviewed.
3. Materials reviews (2-4 pages):
The NYS TESOL Journal welcomes submissions of ESOL resources in print, e-version or web-based. The materials should be related to teaching practices. Currently, we encourage prospective reviewers to select the materials for review and check with the Editors for relevance. If you wish to review resources on technology or anything related to e-sources or software, please be mindful of the most recent editions or observe the up-to-two-year publishing date. Reviews are typically 2-4 pages long, double-spaced. All submissions are peer-reviewed.
4. Readers' comments and views (1-2 pages):
The Journal welcomes comments from the readership on published articles in any of the following formats: a reflection, reaction, short analysis, brief critique, or a personal experience connected to any of the article topics or issues. It should be no more than 500 words in length. This contribution is editor-reviewed.
