Language Learning - Call for Proposals

Sunday, September 5, 2021

Event Details

Language Learning is inviting proposals for a 2023 special issue from interested guest editors

We seek proposals that address a research topic that will be of interest and relevance to the journal's international readership of language learning scholars. We are especially interested in special issue themes that will highlight work in areas of inquiry, theoretical approaches, and methodological tools in language learning which are underrepresented and/or represent cutting-edge developments in the wider interdisciplinary field of language learning.

The special issue will bring together seven to nine original contributions of standard article length (10,000 words including references, tables, and figures) and will be accompanied by an introduction written by the guest editor(s). See an example here.

It is envisaged that guest editors would directly invite their contributors. However, they might also want to put out a 'rapid-response' open call, to ensure that they are gathering the best of the relevant field.

Deadline: E-mail proposals in a single .pdf file to Associate Editor and Special Thematic Issues coordinator, Theres Grüter, at by
