Aims and Scope

CASLAR is a bilingual, double peer-reviewed journal that publishes papers
both in Chinese and English. It is the first bilingual journal (Chinese - English)
published by a Western publisher. The journal will publish 3 papers in Chinese
and 3 papers in English in each issue starting with 2 issues in 2012. Each
paper in the journal will have a summary in both Chinese and English.
The journal will provide a forum for scholars interested in Chinese as a
Second Language Research and focus on research on the acquisition,
development and use of Chinese as a Second Language. It supports
interaction and scholarly debate between researchers representing different
subfields of linguistics with a focus on Chinese as a Second Language. The
journal intends to be a forum for researchers who are looking for new tools
and methods to investigate and better understand CSL.
We are especially interested in publishing articles and research papers that
- address major issues of second language acquisition from the
perspective of CSL,
- explore the implications of CSL research for theoretical developments
and practical applications,
- focus on the acquisition, development and use of varieties of CSL,
- study the nature of interaction between native speakers and non-native
speakers of Chinese,
- investigate how SLA theories can advance and develop better Chinese
language teaching methodologies,
- analyze the ways in which language is both shaped by culture and is
the medium through which culture is created,
. investigate how CSL research can support Chinese as a Second
Language teaching.

No deadline for submissions. Submission is continuous.
