reading, the application of technology to literacy instruction, and
issues in second language learning and teaching.

We welcome both practical and research focused articles (including
action research). Articles should have a clear focus and be written so
that they are accessible to a broad audience of reading and language
educators, including those individuals who may not be familiar with
the particular subject matter addressed in the article.

Manuscripts are being solicited in the following categories:

Articles should report on original research or present an original
framework that links previous research, educational theory, and
teaching practices. Full-length articles should be no more than 6,000
words in length and should include an abstract of no more than 200
words. We encourage articles that take advantage of the electronic
format by including hypermedia links to multimedia material both
within and outside the article.

Please list the names, institutions, e-mail addresses, and if
applicable,World Wide Web addresses (URL(s)), of all authors. Also
include a brief biographical statement (maximum 50 words, in sentence
format) for each author.

Commentaries usually address issues presented in books or articles in
more detail and are reviewed in the same manner as book
reviews. They offer an author's perspective and insight on a
particular issue, and often include discussions about the classroom

Reviews should offer a brief description and evaluation of
professional books, classroom texts, or technological resources
(multimedia software, CALL programs, video material, Web sites,
etc.). Further details are available at:
