Journal of Applied Linguistics and Discourse Studies
The Journal of Applied Linguistics and Discourse Studies is a peer reviewed publication which welcomes papers on topics relevant to two areas of scholarly inquiry: applied linguistics, particularly second language acquisition studies and TESL; discourse studies, including writing and genre studies. The journal also welcomes working papers in the form of, for example, contributions by language teachers about pedagogical concerns, and papers by graduate students in the relevant areas. Book reviews of recent publications of relevance to the journal's topic focus are also welcome. This journal will be published twice annually. This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
