Journal of Language and Education is calling for papers for its special issue. This special issue is devoted to reporting unpublished high quality scholarly papers in the fields of applied linguistics and teaching English as a second or foreign language in different contexts around the world. It publishes reports of empirical studies, critical position papers, and book reviews. The following topics are of interest to the special issue:

  • Cognitive approaches to second and foreign language teaching and learning
  • Applications of cognitive linguistics in foreign language teaching and learning
  • Communicative approaches to second and foreign language teaching and learning

Submitted manuscripts must be written in English and use the template for papers for regular issues. Each submission must contain two files: a main document and a cover letter. The submitted document must be anonymized for double blind review. The cover letter must have the following details: authors’ names, email address, affiliation, abstract of the paper, and declaration of authorship and publication conflict. Authors can consult https://jle.hse.ru/epol for Ethics Policy and https://jle.hse.ru/gg for Information for Authors. Papers which do not follow the guidelines will be returned to the author. Your cover letter must indicate “FOR THE SPECIAL ISSUE”.

All the papers published in the special issue will be screened by the guest editor and then double-blind reviewed by at least two external scholars in the field. High quality papers which will not be published in the special issue will be considered for publication in a regular issue. This will be recommended by the guest editor, agreed by the author, and decided by the Editorial Board. The journal will not charge any fee for review, processing, and publication.
