Call Information:
Call for Spring 2013 Journal Papers

Extended Deadline: November 1, 2012

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
- Academia
- 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.
