About the Journal

Journal of Second and Foreign Languages (JSFL) [ISSN: 3033-490X] is an open access, peer-reviewed and copy-edited journal concerning all aspects of second and foreign languages. The journal encourages emerging interdisciplinary research pertaining to language education and language practices in multilingual societies and increasingly digitalising environments of learning and communication. The journal aligns with the wider intellectual movement of decolonising knowledge, language, and education, and focuses distinctly on research of/for underrepresented languages, minoritized and endangered languages, less widely taught languages, and other smaller languages as well as alternative approaches and pedagogies. The journal promotes quality work of early career researchers and all other stages of career, particularly those of the Global Majority and the Global South. We aim to give equal voice to researchers and practitioners and foster intercommunication of theoretical research and practice-based studies in teaching and pedagogy. The journal publishes two issues per annum, plus guest-edited special issues where there is an interest.

We welcome submissions that contribute to one or more of the relevant subareas of applied linguistics, sociolinguistics and pedagogical studies, including but not limited to:

• Language teaching and learning
• Language acquisition and development
• Bilingualism and multilingualism
• Digital and technology-mediated language
