to e-mail us. We would be pleased to send you information on the
layout, the target clientele, the members of the Editorial Board who

The Journal's focus will be the intercultural approach (ISLT) to

linguistics, psychology, literature, anthropology, etc.

There will be three numbers per year with about six formal papers

electronic discussion forum; a pre-publication section for papers on
which the authors invite critical comments; reports on conferences and
on relevant work in other journals; research projects in ISLT; news
from professional organizations, etc. We expect to work closely with
professional associations in second language teaching all over the

Access to most parts of the Journal will be free. A modest
subscription fee, to cover the administrative costs of publishing this
Journal, will be required for access to all parts.

We hope to hear from you soon! Please pass this announcement on to
colleagues who might be interested.
