Selection of Papers for Language Education in Asia
Volume 8, Issues 1 and 2, 2017

Papers submitted for consideration to Language Education in Asia (LEiA) for Volume 8, Issues 1 and 2 will be accepted until March 8, 2017. Please note that there is only one submission deadline for the year. Papers will be considered together, regardless of the date submitted. Screening includes an examination for similarities to previously published work. Please see the Submission of Papers page for essential information on LEiA preliminary submission requirements: only papers meeting the requirements will be considered by the Editorial Board. Papers received after the submission deadline will be considered for Volume 9 (2018).

Inclusion at the CamTESOL Conference is not a prerequisite for submission. As is standard practice with Language Education in Asia, each submission that is successful in the screening process will be blind-reviewed and submissions accepted by the Editorial Board will be included in the publication.


Appropriate Paper / Abstract Topics

The readership of Language Education in Asia is comprised of local Asian and expatriate educators as well as those from international institutions. Submissions which present well-researched aspects of language education and learning, innovative, practical approaches to classroom practice, and discussion of relevant issues in the field that would be of interest in the Asian region are encouraged. When preparing submissions, authors should consider the context of ELT in developing countries in Asia, where most schools have limited resources and teachers often have to contend with large numbers of students in their classrooms.
