Discontinued. Continued by the Journal of Applied Linguistics and Professional Practice (2040-3658). The inaugural issue of Journal of Applied Linguistics (JAL) is scheduled to appear in March/April 2004. JAL will have 3 issues per year, organised along the following rationale: The first issue every year will include papers on a broad range of applied linguistic themes, based on an open, peer review procedure. The second issue every year will be a special issue (organised thematically, regionally, or using other principled criteria). This issue will be guest-edited by advisory board members or other scholars. The third and final issue every year will be devoted to methodological debates, which will be of particular relevance to the wide audience of postgraduate and post-doctoral researchers. This focus will underscore the point that methodological issues within Applied Linguistics need a different kind of airing to the ways these are discussed in cognate disciplines such as sociology, education, psychology. Language-specific methodological debates around case studies, and the call for a mixing of methodologies within Applied Linguistics more generally will serve a long-awaited need for younger scholars engaged in postgraduate and in funded research.
