This informal session, led by the Editor-in-Chief of The Language Learning Journal, a leading academic, peer-reviewed international journal in the field of language education, which provides a forum for research and scholarly debate on current aspects of foreign language learning and teaching, seeks to provide an opportunity for potential contributors to understand what journal editors and reviewers tend to look for in reviewing for publication and in making quality judgements. There will be ample opportunity for participants to ask questions about the editorial process and to seek general and/or specific advice in relation to getting published in The LLJ or other relevant journals.
