Aims and Scope
International Review of Applied Linguistics in Language Teaching (IRAL) is devoted to problems of general and applied linguistics in their various forms. IRAL's long-term interest lies in areas of research which concern first- and second-language acquisition (including sign language and gestural systems). Contributions are welcome on naturalistic and instructed language learning, language loss, bilingualism, language contact, pidgins and creoles, language for specific purposes, language technology, mother-tongue education, terminology and translation. The journal also features occasional thematic issues.

Instructions for Authors
1. Submitting an article for publication
Manuscripts of articles (approx. 50,000-60,000 characters, including punctuation, spaces, etc.) should be in English. Authors whose native language is not English are asked to have their article carefully checked by a native speaker. All manuscripts must be submitted as email attachments (either in Word format .doc or Rich Text Format .rtf - in addition, please supply a PDF if the article contains unusual fonts) to the Editor:
Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics
P.O. Box 310
6500 AH Nijmegen
One copy of the article must be accompanied by (1) separate title page listing after 'Submission for IRAL': name(s) of the author(s); affiliation; full institutional address and e-mail address of the main author; short title of the article (for running head); size of the paper in total characters (including punctuation, spaces, etc.); (2) abstract of 100-150 words, summarizing the whole paper, not just the conclusions; (3) a list of up to six keywords. The first page of the article should include the title of the article without the name of the author as well as the abstract.
2. Peer review
The journal operates a double-blind peer review that usually takes four months. Submissions are sent to 2 or 3 reviewers.
3. Formatting and style
Once accepted for publication, the author(s) will be required to submit the final version as an e-mail attachment, conforming to journal style.
Please see the De Gruyter Mouton journal style sheet for details regarding journal style. Any special characters used should be labeled and clearly identified at their first occurrence. The Editor reserves the right to reject any articles that do not conform to the requirements.
Copies of any letters granting permission to reproduce illustrations or tables from other sources, or lengthy quoted passages, must be included with the manuscript.
Authors are asked to check their manuscripts very carefully before submitting them in order to prevent delays and extra costs at proofing. Authors will receive PDF proofs for correction which must be returned by dates given in the publication schedule.
Upon publication, authors will receive electronic offprints (in PDF format) of their contribution. Guest editors of special issues will receive complimentary print copies of the issue.
