The European Journal of Applied Linguistics (EuJAL) focuses on the particular concerns of applied linguistics in European contexts, both by addressing problems that are typically relevant for the linguistic situation in Europe, from those on the level of the EU as a pan-national body down to the level of the individual, and by examining topics broached by or discussed in European applied linguistics in particular. In addition to resulting from an epistemological stance, EuJAL is a logical outcome of the regionalization policy of the Association Internationale de Linguistique Appliquée(AILA), supporting the societies' commitment to regionalization by focusing on the European language space and by giving applied linguists from this regional context an adequate forum. EuJAL is part of the joint activities of the European AILA affiliates.

Personal data: Authors should not mention their names in the manuscript and make sure that authorship is kept anonymous.
The journal operates a blind peer review that takes approximately 3-4 months via the online submission system.
Form of manuscripts: Scholarly articles published in EuJAL will usually have a length of about 60,000 characters, including references, spacing and punctuation. Authors should follow the De Gruyter Mouton journal 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", EuJAL simply expects 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: Submitted articles should include at least three abstracts of about 200 words / 1,600 characters (including spacing and punctuation) each: one in English, one in German, and one in Spanish. To underline the Europeaness of EuJAL, authors who are native speakers in another European language other than these three may also add a fourth abstract in their mother tongue. The total number of words for all abstracts should not exceed 800. At minimum of 3 keywords should also be provided in the respective languages.
