Statement of Purpose
The Journal of Second Language Acquisition and Teaching (JSLAT) is a publication of the University of Arizona Interdisciplinary Ph.D. Program in Second Language Acquisition and Teaching (SLAT). JSLAT was conceived as a source for scholarly dialogue among SLAT students, SLAT faculty and the second language research community at large. They are intended as an opportunity for doctoral students in the field of second language studies to experience the publishing process as well as an outlet for established second language researchers to present work in progress.
Who may submit?
JSLAT invites students, faculty, and scholars at any stage of their academic career who are working in Second Language Acquisition or related fields to submit original manuscripts for consideration for publication in the Journal of Second Language Acquisition and Teaching. Papers may be empirical research studies (i.e. work with human subjects, corpus data, or textual analysis) or more theoretical in nature, and should focus on issues related to second language acquisition and teaching.
