                       Call for Papers for JALDA (Journal of Applied Linguistics and  Applied Literature: Dynamics and Advances)


Thursday, July  18, 2019

Dear Authors/Researchers

The Journal of Applied Linguistics and Applied Literature: Dynamics and Advances (JALDA) is an open access, academic, scholarly, and peer-reviewed journal that follows a double-blind policy. JALDA is published both electronically and in print by the Department of English Language and Literature, the Faculty of Literature and Humanities of Azarbaijan Shahid Madani University, Tabriz, Iran.

JALDA is a refereed journal of national and international scope devoted to scientific discussion of issues in applied language studies. The journal is dedicated to promoting scholarly exchange among researchers and educators of English language by nurturing a unique approach to the study of English language and its learning and teaching as a foreign or second language.

 Applied linguistics treats language as a system of communication and a form of social action including such areas of investigation as Teaching English as a Second or Foreign language (EFL/ESL), EFL/ESL Curriculum/ Syllabus/ Methodology/ Assessment, Discourse and Genre Analysis, Applied Literary Studies, English for Specific/Academic Purposes, Second Language Skills, English Language Teacher Education, Classroom-Centered Research, Bilingualism, and Technology in English language Learning and Teaching.

Applied Literature is defined here as any systematic research where literature can solve or ameliorate a real-world problem. In this sense, literature acts as a stimulus to reform. Applied Literature examines the effect of literature on human beings whereby the literary text is in service of dealing with real-life problems. To be able to account for the various aspects of human life in all its contexts, Applied Literature must be interdisciplinary in its nature. Furthermore, to meet the essential requirements of a scientific research, it has to give allegiance to a satisfactory level of methodological rigor.

As an ambitious effort to bring together different perspectives on language, society and educational context, JALDA publishes original papers in problem-oriented applied studies where language and literature is at the center, with the hope for innovative breakthroughs to emerge from this interdisciplinary approach to the dynamics and advances within the neighboring applied language studies.

All submissions are reviewed by our editorial staff before they are published on the website. It will generally take approximately two months for the editor to make a decision on a submission, although it can take longer on the weekends or near holidays.  We appreciate your patience for any probable delays.
