Articles submitted to Applied Linguistics should represent outstanding scholarship and make original contributions to the field. The Editors will assume that an article submitted for their consideration has not previously been published and is not being considered for publication elsewhere, either in the submitted form or in a modified version.
Articles must be written in English and not include libelous or defamatory material. Manuscripts accepted for publication should not exceed 8,500 words including all material for publication in the print version of the article, except for the abstract, which should be no longer than 175 words. Additional material can be made available in the online version of the article. Such additions will be indexed in the print copy.
Applied Linguistics operates a double-blind peer review process. To facilitate this process, authors are requested to ensure that all submissions, whether first or revised versions, are anonymized. Authors' names and institutional affiliations should appear only on a detachable cover sheet. Author's name(s) should be substituted by ‘author’ throughout the paper, e.g. in references to the author's own work. Submitted manuscripts will not normally be returned.
Each contributor should provide a brief biodata of about 90 words listing main interests, recent publications, and a contact address. Email address is optional.
If your article contains extracts from other works, especially Figures, Tables, poetry etc., please contact the authors and publishers before submitting the final version to seek permission to use their work. If primary data is to be included, research participants should have signed a consent form.
All contributors whose articles are accepted for publication will be required to sign a copyright assignment form, and to confirm that their article is original, accurate (inasmuch as can be ascertained in research), and does not include any libellous statements.
Forum pieces are usually reviewed by the journal Editors and are not sent for external review. Items for the Forum section are normally 2,000 words long. Contributions to the Forum section and offers to review book publications should be addressed to the Forum and Reviews Editor.
They may consist of comments, statements on current issues, short reports on ongoing research (but NOT abstracts), or short replies to other articles.
The journal publishes reviews of books relevant to the field of Applied Linguistics. If you would like to review a book for Applied Linguistics, please contact the Reviews Editor. （http://www.oxfordjournals.org/our_journals/applij/for_authors/index.html）Unsolicited book reviews are not accepted for publication.
Manuscripts should be written in English and must be submitted online through our Online Submission Website. Once you have prepared your manuscript according to the instructions please visit the online submission website http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/appling.

If a book is referred to several times, put the full details as a separate entry with just authors and dates elsewhere; however, if it is referred to only once put the full details with the entry for the paper. Please check that all works referred to have their full details somewhere.
If the reference is available online, please give the URL if you know it. We are aiming to provide direct reference linking from the online version of the journal.
If two or more works are referred to, list them in date order. If more than one was published in the same year, list these alphabetically by author's name. Separate them with semicolons, as follows: 'Ellis 1985; Wenden 1986; Swain 1995'.
1960s not 1960's, l96Os, '60s, sixties, etc. 'In the 1970s' rather than 'thirty years ago'.
Figures and Tables:
Where a Figure or Table is to be inserted in the text, on a separate line write
