The Canadian Modern Language Review are inviting proposals for the 16th special issue of the journal. According to the call for proposals:
Proposals should identify a contemporary topic which will allow for the exploration of recent advances in theory, research, and practice in second language learning and teaching. The proposed topic should also be one that will attract diverse perspectives, research methodologies, and pedagogical applications.
An open call for papers will be issued, based on the theme of special issue, and guest editors will have to manage the double-blind peer review process for the submissions. It is expected that at least one of the editors will be fluent in both English and French.
The criteria for the evaluation of the proposals include:
- relevance to the mandate of the journal;
- significance of the topic to the field;
- the qualifications of the two editors.
The deadline for proposals is 25 January 2014, and notification of selection will be given in the spring of 2014.
