Meeting Description:

Seminar Objectives:
- To promote the values and practices of research synthesis in applied linguistics and language education in advancing research and research-practice dialogues;
- To discuss methodological traditions and issues of conducting different types of research synthesis (e.g., meta-analysis, qualitative research evidence);
- To facilitate interdisciplinary dialogues with research synthesists in other social sciences disciplines (e.g., education); and
- To host a preliminary meeting and spread the word for a proposed BAAL SIG, Research Synthesis in Applied Linguistics.

Call for Papers:

We are calling for papers from researchers working in the fields of Applied Linguistics and Language Education interested in methodologies and applications of research syntheses. By ''research synthesis'', we refer to both ''systematic'' and ''traditional'' research synthesis. Types of research synthesis we focus on include:
- Critical review
- Meta-analysis
- Methodological review
- Mixed review
- Narrative review
- Overview
- Qualitative research synthesis
- Research agenda
- Research into practice
- Scoping review
- State-of-the-art review
- Systematic literature review

We are particularly interested in papers which (1) advance our methodological understandings of conducting various types of research synthesis in Applied Linguistics and Language Education and/or (2) discuss ways research synthesis inform practice and policy making.

All submissions will be subject to rigorous peer review, and there are limited number of presentation slots available. There will be a limit of one presentation per presenter. Presenters need to be registered for the event in order to present.

Contributors will be asked to submit the title of your proposed presentation, name(s) of presenter(s), and an extended abstract of not more than 500 words (including references) here: APA 7th edition should be used for citation and referencing.
