Aims and Scope
The Journal of English as a Lingua Franca (JELF) is the first journal to be devoted to the rapidly-growing phenomenon of English as a Lingua Franca. The articles and other features explore this global phenomenon from a wide number of perspectives, including linguistic, sociolinguistic, socio-psychological, and political, in a diverse range of settings where English is the common language of choice.

Instructions for Authors
Please submit your paper as an email attachment firstname.lastname@example.org.
For the aims and scope of JELF please consult the journal website (especially 'Overview') at http://www.degruyter.com/jelf
Personal data with the name, title, affiliation, email and postal address, and a short bio (50-70 words) should be submitted with the paper in a separate file.
The journal operates a blind peer review that takes approximately 3-4 months. Editorial feedback and reviewers' comments will be made available to the authors via the editors. Every effort is made to respond to the authors in a timely manner.
Manuscripts. Scholarly articles published in JELF will usually be about 8,000 words long, including references. Authors should follow the De Gruyter Mouton style sheet but with one change: While the standard style sheet stipulates, under 'Special attention', that authors should have their "contribution carefully checked by a native speaker", the editors of JELF simply expect authors to submit manuscripts written in an English which is intelligible to a wide international academic audience, but it need not conform to native English norms.
Abstracts and keywords. Authors are invited to provide two abstracts of their paper of about 200 words each: one in English, and one in a language they can choose entirely freely. 5-7 keywords should also be provided in both languages.
