We would like to invite you to submit your manuscripts to be evaluated for possible publication in the Journal of Child Language Acquisition and Development - JCLAD. It is a peer-reviewed journal, published bimonthly in February, April, June, August, October and December. Studies designed to test a part or the whole of language acquisition theories; those bringing forth new hypotheses related to the nature of first language acquisition and those which set bridges between language acquisition and other disciplines are given priority. Studies which take a descriptive approach to the nature of language acquisition and development at any stage or in any language are also welcome. Please see Author Guidelines to work the style of your manuscript.
The evaluation process is planned to be completed within six weeks. Submissions are ongoing.
