Articles should make no assumptions about the beliefs or commitments of any reader, should contain nothing which might imply that one individual is superior to another on the grounds of race, sex, culture or any other characteristic, and should use inclusive language throughout.

See also the section on Electronic artwork.
To avoid unnecessary errors you are strongly advised to use the 'spell-check' and 'grammar-check' functions of your word processor.

 
Article structure
Introduction
State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.
 
Theoretical Framework/Literature Review
Contextualize your study in the relevant theoretical and conceptual literature, clearly showing how you are entering into ongoing conversations in the relevant (sub)fields within linguistics and education as well as how you are drawing on extant literature to support your research design and interpretations of data.
 
Methods
Provide sufficient details about your methods and procedures so that readers can understand how and why you understood your study in the manner that you did. Discussion of methods and analytic processes should be clearly related to your theoretical framework and research questions/purpose, and should clearly support the findings that follow.

Conclusions
Findings should clearly grow out of an explicated analytic procedure that relates to your theoretical framework and research questions/purpose. Show as well as tell the reader about your findings and support them clearly by describing how your aforementioned analytic process and engagement with data support these findings.
 
Acknowledgements
Collate acknowledgements in a separate section at the end of the article before the references and do not, therefore, include them on the title page, as a footnote to the title or otherwise. List here those individuals who provided help during the research (e.g., providing language help, writing assistance or proof reading the article, etc.).
 
Abstract
A
detailed abstract is required (of between 300-800 words for research articles or theoretical article). The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. For this reason, References should be avoided, but if essential, then cite the author(s) and year(s). Also, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself.

Keywords
Immediately after the abstract, provide a maximum of 6 keywords, using American or British spelling, but not a mixture of these, and avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts (avoid, for example, "and", "of"). Be sparing with abbreviations: only abbreviations firmly established in the field may be eligible. These keywords will be used for indexing purposes.
 
References
Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). Any references cited in the abstract must be given in full. Unpublished results and personal communications are not recommended in the reference list, but may be mentioned in the text. If these references are included in the reference list they should follow the standard reference style of the journal:

  1. a) Books: Name of the author(s), (year of publication), title Italic, translator, volumeth edition, place of publication: publisher.
  2. b) Articles: Family name and first name of the author(s), (year of publication), "title", name of the electronic Journal (font size 12, preferably in word 2003/winxp), Vol. --, No. --, pp, Doi:
