About the Journal

Aims & Scope

The IAFOR Journal of Language Learning is an Open Access, peer-reviewed, international journal. The journal encourages interdisciplinary research, with the primary focus being on language learning and its relation to the other academic disciplines such as applied linguistics, educational technology, sociology and psychology. We welcome original, previously unpublished papers which are not under consideration for publication in any other journal. Full papers submitted to the related IAFOR conference proceedings research repositories will also be considered, providing that they meet the journal submission guidelines. Authors will be contacted if their paper is selected for review. All papers are reviewed equally according to standard peer review processes, regardless of whether or not the authors have attended a related IAFOR conference.

The journal covers a variety of topics, including:

  • Reflective language teaching and learning
  • Language learning and assessment
  • ICT and CALL in language learning
