Introduction

Journal of Critical Applied Linguistics Studies (JCALS) is an international and multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal that considers any original contribution improving or shedding lights on applied linguistics research and practice, or providing evidence about developing, implementing, and analyzing applied linguistics issues. JCALS is intended to enhance communication among applied linguistics researchers, policy and decision-makers, professionals, and practitioners. JCALS publishes diverse categories of articles. All types of articles are subject to double-blind peer-review. The journal publishes the following types of contribution: 

JCALS Article Types:

Editorial

Editorials are the message of the JCALS and are written in-house by the journal's Editorial Board members. These provide state of the art discussions on the JCALS main scopes. The title should be short and not descriptive. We prefer this kind of articles written by few authors (maximum 3 authors). Please find further details in Table.

Viewpoint

These articles are opinion-based and present a new and unique viewpoint on existing problems, fundamental concepts, or prevalent notions of linguistics study policy and practice interest. The title should be short and not descriptive. We prefer this kind of articles written by few authors (maximum 3 authors). Please find further details in Table.

Review Article

These articles consist of Systematic Review, Meta-Analysis, Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis, Meta-Synthesis, and Scoping Review. Inclusion and exclusion criteria for studies should be described in a flow diagram. The specific type of study or analysis, intervention, population, exposure, outcomes or tests should be described for each data source or article. Authors should clearly cover the following topics in the method section: search strategy and selection criteria, data extraction, quality assessment, and data analysis. A structured abstract is required that should include: Background, Methods, Results, Conclusion, and Registry Name and Number (if the protocol of these articles had been registered in a registry system).

Authors MUST ensure that all points are included and state page numbers where each item can be found. Please see the details  in Table.

Original Article

These articles must be of primary research, methodologically accurate, and relevant to the international and local cirtical applied linguistics issues. Each manuscript should clearly state an objective or hypothesis; the design of study and methodology (including study setting, research participants, inclusion and exclusion criteria, sampling and data source); data analysis and interpretations; the main results of the study, discussing the results; addressing study limitations and the conclusion. For all original articles, a structured abstract is required (please see instructions for preparing Abstracts). Authors should include the Ethical Issues/Statement in both the main manuscript under the method section (it should be blind) and the Title Page. If pursuing the ethical approval was not necessary for the study (eg, using secondary data), authors are still required to declare the reasons.

As part of JCALS Knowledge Translation imitative, all original articles should report Key Messages under a separate heading namely: Implications for Practitioners (please see instructions for preparing Key Messages). Please find further details in Table.

Note: Only original articles require Key Messages.

You can submit your manuscript using the Sample Word Template provided here.

Short Communication

Short communications are short articles (mini original articles) that present original and important preliminary findings that do not warrant publication as a full-length article but are still worthy of publication. The main text should be sub-divided into background, methods, results, and discussion, but should be written as concisely as possible. To maintain brevity, these articles do not need key messages, however, they should include the Ethical Issues/Statement in both the main manuscript under method section (it should be blind) and the Title Page.  Please see the details in Table.

Commentary

Commentaries, which draw attention to or present criticism on selected JCALS publications, are the JCALS signature. We aim to strike a balance between rigour and relevance through inviting not only leading scholars in the field (academic/research community) but other key stakeholders in the critical applied linguistics studies to comment on our selected publications. We strive to spark applied linguistics constructive debates and discussions among key stakeholders and bring about a diversity of perspectives. Authors of the lead/source article and editors decide whom to invite to comment. Please see the details in Table.

Correspondence

These articles are invited only and are written in response to published commentaries by authors whose articles have been subject to commentaries. Please see the details in Table.

Letter to Editor

We welcome short letters with topics of interest to the JCALS readership. Please see the details in Table.

You can submit your Original Article using the Sample Word Template provided here. 

 

Formulas 

  • Equations must be typed only in MathType.
  • Graphical objects should not be used.
  • Your equations should be editable.
  • If you have used built-in equation editing tool in Microsoft Word, the equations will become unusable during the typesetting process. To resolve this problem, please re-key your equations using MathType.
  • Long equations should be set off from the text and numbered sequentially.
  • If you cannot avoid using many equations or schemes, you can collect them in a table of equations and shot them as a framed figure to avoid typesetting errors.   

 

Tables 

  • Should be cited in numerical order upon their first mention.
  • Should be prepared left to right and cell-based (i.e., created in Word with the Tables tool).
  • Table number and caption always appear above the table. Leave 2 line spaces between the table and the caption.

 

  • Should be editable and upright on the page, not on sideways.
  • Should be prepared with real rows and columns and not aligned with tabs, returns, or spaces.
  • Multi-part tables with varying numbers of columns or multiple footnotes should be organized as separate tables.
  • Should be plain with NO colors, shading, or graphics.
  • Should not contain inserted text boxes, tables within tables or cells within cells.

Files prepared with Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw or Adobe Photoshop should be uploaded in these native file formats.
  • All digitized images must be of high quality; that is, resolutions of at least 300 dpi for color figures, 600 dpi for greyscales and 1200 dpi for line arts.
  • Histograms should be prepared in a simple, two-dimensional format, with no background grid.
  • Make sure that any specific patient/hospital details are removed or blacked out (e.g., X-rays, MRI scans, etc).
  • If photographs of patients are used, they should not be identifiable. However, do not use a black bar to obscure a patient’s identity.
  • Original data from which the images were prepared should be available, as the editors may request to see these data (e.g., Office, SPSS and other line art images).
  • Lettering in figures (e.g., labeling of axes) should be in lower-case type, with the first letter capitalized and no full stop. All text should be in a sans-serif typeface, preferably Arial with size 8 pt.
  • Avoid using the touch-up tools, such as cloning and healing tools in Photoshop, or any feature that deliberately obscures manipulations.
  • Graphics downloaded from Web pages should not be used.
  • Please remember that vector drawing data is absent from these files: png, jpeg, tiff, or bmp. Subsequently resaving any of these files as a PDF or EPS will not produce a vector drawing in these files. Please supply the original EPS, Ai, or PDF file versions of artwork.

  • Cite references in the text, tables, or figures in consecutively numerical order by means of superscript Arabic numerals. It is acceptable for a reference to be cited only in a table or a figure legend and not in the text if it is in sequence with references cited in text.
  • Use Arabic superscript numerals outside periods and commas, inside colons and semicolons.
  • Two references are cited with a comma and no space. Three or more consecutive references are cited in a range with dashes.
  • References in tables, figures, and panels should be in numerical order according to where the item is cited in the text.
  • Please note that if references are not cited in order the manuscript may be returned for amendment before it is passed on to the Editor for assessment.

Each supplementary file should include:
1. Article title
2. Journal name
3. Authors information including author names, affiliation, and email address of the corresponding author.
4. Main content such as tables, figures, description method.
5. We suggest not adding references to the supplementary files since we do not activate the links and they are not counted as citation. However, if you need to insert the references within the supplementary file, they should be cited in order following the references in the main text as per JCALS style. Please find the JCALS style for references from here.
6. Please insert page number for all supplementary files.
- Numbering
1. Please use separate numbering system for tables and figures eg, Table S1, Table S2.
2. Please cite all supplementary files’ material in the main manuscript based on the numbering order.
- Captions
Please provide a concise, descriptive caption for each supplementary material eg, Tables and Figures.
- Format
1. Please choose an appropriate title (precise and concise) for each supplementary file eg, Supplementary File 1. Search Strategy.
2. We accept .pdf, .doc, .xls and .ppt formats.
- Size
Please decrease the files’ size as small as possible so that they can be downloaded easily.
 
Please see the sample Supplementary File from here.  

 
How to Submit the Revision
The corresponding author should submit the revisions via the JCALS portal according to the following instruction: 
Please go to your profile (Author section)--"Submissions Needing Revision" section--Click on your manuscript ID--Upload the correct version and delete any old versions (you can change all information eg, title, abstract, etc.)--and push the "submit" button. 
Please Do NOT start a New Submission and Do NOT send the revisions via email. 

Proofs
Corresponding author will be sent page proofs (as PDF files) by email. These should be checked immediately and corrections, as well as answers to any queries, returned to the journal as an annotated PDF via email within 3-5 working days (further details are supplied with the proof). It is the author's responsibility to check proofs thoroughly. You will need to download Adobe Reader version 11 available free from Adobe or Foxit Reader
We will do everything possible to get your article published quickly and accurately. Therefore, it is important to ensure that all of your corrections are sent back to us in one communication. Please note that rephrasing sentences, additions, or omissions are not allowed at the proof stage.
Important Note: Authors should approve the PDF proof and provide us with the corrections in due time. Not meeting the deadline and a long delay to respond could lead to withdraw of the manuscript at this stage. Please note that NO further edits/corrections are accepted after publication. Authors MUST check the PDF proof very carefully.

Video Summary Guideline (not part of submission process)
As another JCALS knowledge translation activity, we invite authors of selected publications to prepare a video summary of their articles to be published on the JCALS YouTube Channel.
Note: Video summary is not part of submission process. Only after publication, editors select some articles and invite authors for a video summary, which is optional and authors can decline the invitation.
Our video summaries present the summary of our recently published articles, filmed by articles’ authors. By video summaries we aim to help both academics and non-academics to scan the literature promptly and understand quickly the key themes of an article without going through pages of an article. We hope that our video summaries will help our articles to be more visible, reachable, and discoverable. We also hope to provide a personalized forum for our authors to simply convey their article messages to the JCALS global readership. 
To prepare video please kindly consider the following points:

  • The length of video should be maximum 4 minutes.
  • The video should present the summery of article.
  • The authors are encouraged to use images, animations, and slides to increase visibility of their videos.
  • The speaker should seat at the center of the frame.
  • The camera or the smart phone must be at the same level as the speaker, not higher or lower.
  • The space at both top and bottom of the screen should be 20 cm.
  • The speaker should leave enough pauses (5-6 seconds) before starting and after finishing the talk.
  • To avoid camera shake, we recommend using a tripod.
  • The speaker should not seat in a place with a window at the background; we recommended seating in a place with a wall at the background.
  • The speaker should keep the noise down at the time of recording.
  • We recommend using the MP4 format.
  • We recommend a landscape mode with the frame size of 1280*720 pixels
  • JCALS Copyright Statement is applied for the use and distribution of video summaries. 

 
How to share the video with JCALS :

  • Authors can upload the video in Dropbox and share the link with us via ... .
  • Once we receive your video, it will be checked and if there is no technical problem, we will edit and then publish it on the JCALS YouTube channel and also our videocast page.

You can watch our published videos by visiting JCALS YouTube Channel and also by clicking here.
