Journal for Language Teaching: Scope
The Journal for Language Teaching (ISSN: 0259-9570) is the official journal of the South African Association for Language Teaching (SAALT) / Suid-Afrikaanse Vereniging vir Taalonderrig (SAVTO) / Mbumbana ya Afrika Tshipembe ya u Gudisa Nyambo. (Find all DHET accredited journals).
The South African Journal for Language Teaching focuses on the publication of research in the domains of language teaching, applied language studies and language practice. The journal gives preference to the publication of research with an empirical base (quantitative and/or qualitative studies, mixed methods research, case studies, action research, etc.). Descriptions of language classroom interventions or courses with no empirical component are not typically considered for publication in the journal. Conceptual articles and meta-analyses are published from time to time. The Journal welcomes original research articles, as well as replication studies. The editor may invite specific authors on occasion to write “state of the art reviews” on relevant topics. The journal may include theme-based research, as well as research-in-progress reports.
The Journal appears at least twice a year, is peer reviewed, and is indexed by African Journals Online (AJOL), Sabinet, and EBSCO.
