Journals in Applied Linguistics / ELT

In 1988, as a graduate student at the University of Texas at Austin, I raised funding to launch Texas Papers in Foreign Language Education (TPFLE) and later edited its first issue. At the Chinese University of Hong Kong, I co-edited the Asian Journal of English Language Teaching (AJELT)  from 1996 to 2006. (I named both journals.) Thus, my experience as a journal editor runs to nearly 20 years. I have also served on the Editorial Boards of five journals and reviewed manuscripts for ten journals. Hence, if you wish to launch an academic journal or strengthen an existing journal, I could advice you on the following aspects:

setting-up editorial policy
recruiting editorial board members
designing submission guidelines
recruiting manuscript reviewers
setting-up review guidelines, and
marketing the journal to an international audience.
