A message from the EuroSLA president and the editor of JESLA

Dear EuroSLA member,

As EuroSLA30 fast approaches, we look forward to e-seeing many of you there!

A reminder that one of the benefits you have as a member of EuroSLA is the chance to publish in our very own Association Journal.

JESLA publishes outstanding peer-reviewed work by EuroSLA members, and we present an award for best paper at every Conference.

Papers can be submitted at any point, with the advantages of no-cost open access, and fast turnaround; where possible, time between submission and publication is typically 6-9 months.

For publication in this year’s JESLA (Volume 5), we aim to publish accepted papers submitted by June, depending on reviewer availability. This year, in view of ongoing disruptions to everyone’s routines, we’re extending the existing deadline til 21st June 2021.

Submissions are accepted from all EuroSLA members of good standing – i.e. current members who have attended at least one EuroSLA conference in the last four years. The submitted papers may draw on the work presented at the conference, but it could also be new work not previously showcased at EuroSLA. We welcome empirical, theoretical and methodological research papers, including meta-analyses. No specific theories or approaches are given preference.

For more information on submitting your work, and to access all of our journal content, please visit the JESLA website https://www.euroslajournal.org/
