Issues in Applied Linguistics


Created in November of 1989, Issues in Applied Linguistics is a refereed journal that is currently managed, edited and published by graduate students in the TESOL Program at the Applied and Advanced Studies in Education Division, California State University Los Angeles. The journal is published once yearly and has established international distribution and a solid reputation in the fields of Applied Linguistics and TESOL.

Our aim is to publish outstanding research from students, faculty, and independent researchers in the broad areas of discourse analysis, sociolinguistics, first language acquisition, second language acquisition, language analysis, language assessment, language education, language use, and research methodology. We are particularly interested in publishing new departures and cross-disciplinary endeavors in the field of Applied Linguistics.

The manuscript management of Issues in Applied Linguistics is a collaboration between California State University, Los Angeles and the University of California, Los Angeles, where the journal was originally created.
