Guidance on how to submit an article

ALL invites submissions from trainee and experienced language teachers and student researchers who are willing to share their learning with others.  Accepted submissions will be freely available to ALL members via the website.

Prior to acceptance, submissions are peer reviewed by a panel including members of the ITT academic community, researchers and experienced teachers. Submissions must meet the following criteria:

  • Informative contribution which will be of interest to the language teaching community
  • Well-structured argument with clear links between theory / literature and classroom practice
  • Evidence of high level reflection about emerging issues
  • Excellent standard of written English with accurate referencing

Submissions drawn from Masters and PhD/EdD work should be submitted with a supporting statement from an academic tutor who has already reviewed the work. Other submissions which report on non-assessed school-based initiatives are also welcome. All submissions should be approximately 1000 words (maximum 2500 words) in length.

Where possible, submissions which are not accepted will receive feedback and will be reconsidered for one further submission.
