Computer Assisted Language Learning is dedicated to publishing articles that enhance our understanding of the technology-mediated language learning process. Papers where language learning is not the focus or is demonstrably less important than other aspects will not be considered.
Submitted articles should have the following qualities:
- show a rigorous research method informed by a strong theoretical underpinning;
- explicitly build on previous research in the field, providing sufficient up-to-date references to relevant publications, especially those from CALL-related journals;
- feature an experimental or observational method, and not be just surveys, pilot studies, or systematic reviews of literature;
- display a clear logic behind the use of technology and a strong rationale in support of the research question, with these points being apparent in the abstract;
- transcend the solely local aspect of the research context, demonstrating a contribution of potential broader relevance and generalizability.
