Call for Papers

Call for Spring 2013 Journal Papers
The Journal of the National Council of Less Commonly Taught Languages
(JNCOLCTL) is soliciting articles for publication.

The Journal, published annually by NCOLCTL, is dedicated to the issues and
concerns related to the teaching and learning of Less Commonly Taught
Languages. The Journal primarily seeks to address the interests of language
teachers, administrators, and researchers. Arti­cles that describe in­novative
and successful teaching methods that are relevant to the con­cerns or
problems of the profession, or that report educational research or
experimentation in Less Common­ly Taught Lan­guages are welcome. Papers
presented at NCOLCTL's annual conference will be considered for publication,
but additional manuscripts from members of the pro­fes­sion are also welcome.

Our general editorial focus is on policy, education, programs, advocacy, and
research in the field of Less commonly Taught Languages (LCTLs). The
envisioned coverage of the journal is as follows:

Methodology and Technology
Beyond Academia
Social embeddedness

The Journal of the National Council of Less Commonly Taught Languages
shall include papers focusing on broader theoretical and technological issues
in all fields of LCTL's along with reports about research and teaching in
academia, at both the K-12 and collegiate levels. Also to be included are
papers addressing research and teaching in government and industry and
issues of a broader social environment, ranging from heritage communities to
advancing LCTLs in federal initiatives and legislation in the USA.
