Announcing the International Multilingual Research Journal

The International Multilingual Research Journal (IMRJ) invites
scholarly contributions with strong interdisciplinary perspectives to
understand and promote bi/multilingualism, bi/multi-literacy, and
linguistic democracy. The journal's focus is on these topics as
related to languages other than English as well as dialectal
variations of English. It has three thematic emphases: The
intersection of language and culture, the dialectics of the local and
global, and comparative models within and across contexts. The IMRJ
is committed to promoting equity, access, and social justice in
education, and to offering accessible research and policy analyses to
better inform scholars, educators, students, and policy makers.

The IMRJ is particularly interested in scholarship grounded in
interdisciplinary frameworks that offer insights from linguistics,
applied linguistics, education, globalization and immigration
studies, cultural psychology, linguistic and psychological
anthropology, sociolinguistics, literacy studies, post-colonial
studies, critical race theory, and critical theory and pedagogy. It
seeks theoretical and empirical scholarship with implications for
research, policy, and practice. Submissions of research articles
based on quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods are encouraged.

The journal includes book reviews and two occasional sections:
Perspectives and Research Notes. Perspectives allows for informed
debate and exchanges on current issues and hot topics related to bi/
multilingualism, bi/multi-literacy, and linguistic democracy from
research, practice, and policy perspectives. Research Notes are
shorter submissions that provide updates on major research projects
and trends in the field.

--The IMRJ will be published semi-annually in 2007, with the first
issue is due out around January.
