Welcome to the Taiwan Journal of TESOL

In this world, English is used as a lingua franca and so teaching English to speakers of other languages (TESOL) has received considerable attention. The Taiwan Journal of TESOL (TJTESOL) thus aims to publish quality papers on teaching English to speakers of other languages (TESOL). It is an international refereed open-access journal dedicated to broadening epistemic horizons, deepening theoretical underpinnings, and improving practices. 

The Journal welcomes contributions in all areas of TESOL, with a particular focus on the connection between theory and practice. All kinds of research methodologies are welcomed. Pedagogical and/or theoretical implications are viewed as essential for TESOL development. In so doing, the Journal hopes to provide a forum for idea exchange among scholars and practitioners worldwide.

The journal adopts a broad understanding of TESOL, so papers on contexts of EFL, ESL, ELF, bilingual education, and multilingual education are all welcomed. It also appreciates research informed by inter-disciplinary and cross-national collaboration. It welcomes topics on, but not limited to, policy, pedagogy, curriculum, assessment, technology, multiliteracies, and professional development.

The journal is jointly published by the Department of English at National Chengchi University (NCCU) and Crane Publishing (Taipei). It publishes one volume per year, composed of a Spring and a Fall issue available as both print and online versions. Research articles and book reviews are welcome as well as proposals for special issues. Contributions may be submitted from all countries and are accepted all year round. Manuscripts simultaneously submitted to other publications cannot be accepted. The language of publication is English. The journal does not charge submission fees.
