Dutch Journal of Applied Linguistics

The Dutch Journal of Applied Linguistics (DuJAL) focuses on promoting Dutch and Belgian work in applied linguistics among an international audience, but also welcomes contributions from other countries. It caters for both the academic society in the field and for language and communication experts working in other contexts, such as institutions involved in language policy, teacher training, curriculum development, assessment, and educational and communication consultancy. DuJAL is the digital continuation of Toegepaste Taalwetenschap in Artikelen, which had been the journal of Anéla, the Dutch Association of Applied Linguistics, for forty years. Like its predecessor, DuJAL wants to offer a platform to young researchers in applied linguistics, i.e. PhD candidates and MA students. In order to maintain a high standard all submissions are subjected to a ‘double blind’ review by at least one external reviewer and two of the editors. Contributions may be written in Dutch, English, German or French.

1. All inquiries should be directed towards the editor by e-mailing the journal at anela-adminATuvt.nl

2. Contributions must be in English, Dutch, French or German. In English spelling should be either American English or British English and should be consistent throughout the paper. If not written by a native speaker, it is advisable to have the paper checked by a native speaker prior to submission.

3. All articles published in DuJAL are double-blind peer reviewed. For initial submission, authors should therefore deliver their MANUSCRIPT in electronic form (Word or rtf), double-spaced with 3 cm/1 inch margins. The limit for an article is 6000 words; the word limit for research notes 2000; and 1200 for book reviews. An article is a full-fledged paper that generally presents novel data on research questions or hypotheses that are embedded in an extensive theoretical framework. An article may also consist of a thorough review of the literature (e.g. meta-analysis), which summarizes existing work and generates avenues for future research. Research notes are short papers which aim to advance new ideas or perspectives in theory or methodology, or to provide novel extensions or replications of previously published studies. For research notes, it is important to clearly state what kind of contribution the note aims to make.. While submitting the manuscript through Editorial Manager, please make sure to fill out the title of the article; the name, affiliation, and address of each author; a self-contained abstract in English (100-150 words), and five to ten keywords.

4. Upon acceptance, the author will be requested to furnish the FINAL VERSION in electronic form (Word or rtf). For the final accepted version the following standards MUST be followed:

5. Authors are responsible for observing copyright laws when quoting or reproducing material. The copyright of articles published in DuJAL is held by the publisher. Permission for the author to use the article elsewhere will be granted by the publisher provided full acknowledgement is given to the source.

6. Papers should be reasonably divided into sections and, if appropriate subsections. The headings of these subsections should be numbered in Arabic numerals (1.; 1.1.; 1.1.1.).

7. Line drawings (FIGURES) should be submitted as reproducible originals. They should be numbered consecutively, and appropriate captions should be provided. Reference to any FIGURES should be given in the appropriate place where they should appear.

8. TABLES should be numbered consecutively and should be referred to in the main text.

9. NOTES should appear as FOOTNOTES and should be concise, kept to a minimum, and numbered consecutively throughout the paper.

10. REFERENCES in the text should be formatted according to APA style:

A Work by Two Authors: Name both authors in the signal phrase or in the parentheses each time you cite the work. Use the word “and” between the authors’ names within the text and use the ampersand in the parentheses.

Research by Wegener and Petty (1994) supports...
(Wegener & Petty, 1994)

A Work by Three to Five Authors: List all the authors in the signal phrase or in parentheses the first time you cite the source.

(Kernis, Cornell, Sun, Berry, & Harlow, 1993)
In subsequent citations, only use the first author’s last name followed by “et al.” in the signal phrase or in parentheses.
(Kernis et al., 1993)

In et al., et should not be followed by a period.

Six or More Authors: Use the first author’s name followed by et al. in the signal phrase or in parentheses.

Harris et al. (2001) argued...
(Harris et al., 2001)

Two or More Works in the Same Parentheses: When your parenthetical citation includes two or more works, order them the same way they appear in the reference list, separated by a semi-colon. That means that they are in alphabetical, not chronological order.

(Berndt, 2002; Harlow, 1983)

Authors With the Same Last Name: To prevent confusion, use first initials with the last names.

(E. Johnson, 2001; L. Johnson, 1998)

Two or More Works by the Same Author in the Same Year: If you have two sources by the same author in the same year, use lower-case letters (a, b, c) with the year to order the entries in the reference list. Use the lower-case letters with the year in the in-text citation.
