JESLA is the Journal of the European Second Language Association (EuroSLA). It publishes high-quality, peer-reviewed open-access articles in the field of second language research. Its aim is to promote the understanding of second language learning and use, and to stimulate the debate on the bilingual and multilingual individual and society. JESLA publishes one continuous issue per year, comprising the best research from the EUROSLA community.
We are very pleased to announce that starting with the 2019 issue, JESLA will publish the best work by EUROSLA members, irrespective of whether the work was presented at the annual conference.
Who can submit to JESLA?
Submissions are accepted from all EUROSLA members of good standing – i.e. current members who have attended at least one EUROSLA conference in the last three years. The submitted papers may draw on the work presented at the conference, but could also be new work not previously showcased at EUROSLA.
Deadlines and turnaround times
Papers can now be submitted at any point. The review process will start in January 2020, and the papers received before mid-January will be published in summer 2020. Accepted papers submitted after January will be published on a rolling basis later in the year. The turnaround time between submission and publication will
remain 6-9 months.
Papers should be between 7,000 and 8,000 words in length (including the abstract, acknowledgements, references, endnotes, tables/figures and their legends). Please follow the journal's Author Guidelines when preparing your
JESLA best article award
There is an award for the best paper submitted to JESLA in any one year. The prize consists of a EUROSLA conference fee and dinner waiver + a framed certificate presented at the AGM. The prize for the 2019 best paper will be presented at the 2020 AGM.
We look forward to receiving your papers!
