EnglishUSA Journal Submission Guidelines

EnglishUSA invites contributions from teachers, administrators and staff in the field of English language teaching to be published in the bi-annual EnglishUSA Journal, which focuses on theory and practice in the discipline. The journal serves as a medium for sharing best practices, addressing current issues and presenting research in the field of teaching English as a second/foreign language. Submissions will be received and reviewed by the members of the EnglishUSA Board, published in an online journal and shared with the EnglishUSA members and wider ESL/EFL community.


Submission policies and procedures

The EnglishUSA Journal is created for readers interested in English Language teaching, administration and leadership. The Journal is published twice per year and features practical and theoretical content primarily focused on programs in the USA who serve international students in a proprietary or university governed institution. Featured articles support EnglishUSA’s interest to represent, support and be the recognized voice of English language programs in the USA, valuing engagement, integrity, excellence, and collaboration.

All submissions are on a voluntary basis and are accepted from within and outside the USA regardless of membership status. Submissions may fall under one of these categories:
