Journal CAJLE

Journal CAJLE

Journal CAJLE was first published in 1997 and the peer-reviewed journal is now published online annually in summer, as a multidisciplinary forum for communicating new information, recent research results, and practical experiences reports, concerning Japanese language education, immersion programs, and bilingual education, Japanese linguistics (including second language acquisition), and Japanese literature and culture.

Eligibility: The author must be a member of CAJLE at the time of submission. For coauthored submissions, at least one author must be a member. (Membership Information)  All manuscripts for consideration should not have been published before, nor may they be under review elsewhere.

In addition to general submissions, selected presentations of CAJLE annual conferences will be invited shortly after the conference for submission to the journal. These submissions will undergo a separate review process according to the journal standards. Please note that Journal CAJLE is different from the Conference Proceedings. Conference participants are eligible to submit papers to Journal CAJLE based on their proceedings (as well as new papers), provided that they are substantially expanded in content and length. For further information and instructions, please consult the Submission Guidelines (updated, Aug. 1, 2022).

Submissions for the journal are accepted at any time; however, manuscripts accepted by January 10 are considered for publication in the same year’s volume.
