|Description:||The focus of this 30-year-old journal has recently been expanded from the topics of language education and second language acquisition in China to also include a wide variety of other relevant topics in Chinese applied linguistics. The journal is an Asian journal with international appeal: all articles are published in English (with Chinese abstracts provided), the editorial board members are diverse, and the journal attracts submissions from researchers all over the world.
The journal is affiliated with the China English Language Education Association.
The "Chinese Journal of Applied Linguistics (CJAL)" (formerly known as "Teaching English in China – CELEA Journal") was created in 1978 as a newsletter by the British Council, Beijing. It is the affiliated journal of China English Language Education Association (founded in 1981 and now the Chinese affiliate of AILA [International Association of Applied Linguistics]).
The "Chinese Journal of Applied Linguistics" is the only English language teaching (ELT) journal in China that is published in English, serving as a window to Chinese reform on ELT for professionals in China and around the world. The journal is internationally focused, fully refereed, and its articles address a wide variety of topics in Chinese applied linguistics which include – but also reach beyond – the topics of language education and second language acquisition.
Beginning with the first issue in 2011, the journal will be co-published by De Gruyter Mouton, the Foreign Language Teaching and Research Press (FLTRP), and the Cultural and Education Section of the British Embassy.
De Gruyter Mouton will be responsible for the sales and distribution of the journal outside of China.
