Pedagogical Linguistics

Pedagogical Linguistics publishes work on educational applications of theoretical and descriptive linguistics. The general aim of the journal is to bring the formal and the functional strands of linguistics together in order to establish a forum where they can cross-fertilize each other with the aim of discussing and developing linguistics’ potential contribution to language pedagogy. Pedagogical Linguistics publishes research originating in theoretical linguistics, psycholinguistics, and linguistic approaches to acquisition which outlines the didactic and educational relevance of recent research findings. The primary audience for this journal are researchers interested in state-of-the-art approaches to questions of language acquisition and linguistic theory that find applications in pedagogy, as well as a more general audience whose training is in education and pedagogy.

Pedagogical Linguistics publishes its articles Online First.

    Submission Guidelines

    Authors wishing to submit articles for publication in Pedagogical Linguistics are requested to do so through the journal’s online submission and manuscript tracking site. All other enquiries should be directed towards the editors by e-mailing them at: andreas.trotzke at uni-konstanz.de and/or thomas.rankin at jku.at.

    Manuscripts submitted to Pedagogical Linguistics will undergo double-blind peer review and will be evaluated based on their originality, methodological rigor, significance of findings, and quality of presentation. Manuscripts submitted for consideration to the journal should not be previously published or being considered for publication elsewhere.

    All submissions to Pedagogical Linguistics should be written in English and prepared according to the following guidelines.

    Length

    Full-length articles reporting on empirical or theoretical research should be 7,000-9,000 words. Word limits should be adhered to closely; tables, references, notes, and appendices should be included in the word counts.

    Abstract

    Full-length articles and descriptions of corpora and methods should include an abstract that is 150-200 words long.

    Keywords

    All submissions should include four to six keywords that can be used for indexing purposes.

    Presentation

    All submissions should be presented in Times New Roman, 12-point font. Please include page numbers in the manuscript.

    Sections and Section Headings

    All sections should be numbered and labeled with a descriptive title. Please do not exceed three levels of headings. Section numbering should follow the pattern 1, 2 (for level one); 1.1, 1.2 (for level two); and 1.1.1, 1.1.2 (for level three).

    Tables, Figures, and Other Graphics

    In the initial submission, authors should place tables, figures, and other graphics within the paper in the desired location. However, authors should be prepared to submit original artwork files separately upon final accepted submission. All tables and figures should be numbered consecutively and include a caption that is informative and concise. All tables and figures should be introduced in the text.

    In-text references

    References in the text should follow the Name (year) format. Use et al. for three or more authors after the first mention (include all authors in the reference list). Examples:

    Smith (2005)
    Harding and Jones (2009)
    Johnson et al. (2014)
    Jones (2007, 2010)

    When both the name and the year is placed in parentheses, include a comma between the name and date; replace ‘and’ with ‘&’. When page numbers are required, follow the format year + colon + page numbers (no ‘pp.’). Separate multiple references with commas. Examples:

    (Smith, 2005)
    (Smith, 2005: 56-58)
    (Smith, 2005; Harding & Jones, 2007)
    (Johnson et al., 2014: 43)

    Quotations

    Use double quotes for shorter quotations. Quotations longer than 40 words should be displayed as an indented block quote. Any quotations within the main quote should use single quotes.

    Language examples

    Language examples and linguistic items within the main text should be in italics, with bolding for further emphasis:

    Longer examples should be set apart from the main text with blank lines before and after, indented, and numbered. Examples should be referred to in the text by number (e.g., Example 1 shows that…). Italics, bold, and underlining can be used for further emphasis if needed. Examples:

    (1)       Specifically, we were interested in investigating the quantitative difference in the use of grammatical structures associated with registers over time.

    (2)       This may be explained by the presence of high fluctuations in the 1 min. data.

    Acknowledgements

    In order to maintain anonymity, acknowledgements, if any, should not be included in the initial submission. Authors of accepted papers may include a brief acknowledgements section in the final submission. This should be an unnumbered section immediately following the conclusion.

    Notes

    Use endnotes rather than footnotes. These should be numbered consecutively throughout the paper and included as an unnumbered section following the conclusion or acknowledgements section.

    Reference list The full reference list should follow guidelines provided by the American Psychological Association (6th edition). A few examples follow; please consult the APA manual for full details.
