The inaugural issue of Journal of Applied Linguistics (JAL) is
scheduled to appear in May 2004. JAL will have 3 issues per year,
organised along the following rationale:

The first issue every year will include papers on a broad range of
applied linguistic themes, based on an open, peer review procedure.

The second issue every year will be a special issue (organised
thematically, regionally, or using other principled criteria). This
issue will be guest-edited by advisory board members or other

The third and final issue every year will be devoted to methodological
debates, which will be of particular relevance to the wide audience of
postgraduate and post-doctoral researchers. This focus will underscore
the point that methodological issues within Applied Linguistics need a
different kind of airing to the ways these are discussed in cognate
disciplines such as sociology, education,
psychology. Language-specific methodological debates around case
studies, and the call for a mixing of methodologies within Applied
Linguistics more generally will serve a long-awaited need for younger
scholars engaged in postgraduate and in funded research.

Each annual volume will also contain a selection of special features
such as editorials; debates/dialogues on specific themes/keywords;
interviews by specialists with key scholars; review articles; synopses
of funded projects; doctoral research reports; book notices on
specific domains.
