Multilingual Education, a new Open Access Journal - now accepts submissions

URL: http://www.multilingual-education.com/

Editor-in-Chief Andy Kirkpatrick and an international board of leading
experts are proud to announce the launch of the new online Open Access
journal: Multilingual Education.

Multilingual Education is a high-quality journal that publishes
empirical research on education in multilingual societies. The journal
publishes research findings that in addition to providing descriptions
of language learrning, development and use in language contact and
multilingual contexts, will shape language education policy and
practices in multilingual societies.

Multilingual Education is highly relevant to researchers in language
and education, language education professionals, and policy makers.

The journal publishes research on matters such as:

    *  the effects of multilingual education and literacy education on
the maintenance and development of multilingualism.

    *  the effects of the introduction of English as a curriculum
subject and/or medium of instruction upon multilingual and literacy

    *  the respective role(s) of vernaculars and ‘local’ languages,
national languages and English in education, especially where the
languages are of different language families, and scripts are
different or languages lack an orthography.

    *  the role in multilingual education of other major languages
such as Arabic, French, Hindi, Mandarin and Spanish.

    *  the effects of multilingual and/or English language education
on school drop out and retention rates.

    *  the effects of the ‘internationalization’ of universities
worldwide, potential privileging of the English language and of
knowledge published in English.

    *  bilingual/multilingual acquisition of non-cognate and
‘different-script’ languages.

    *  stakeholder attitudes toward notions of multilingualism and
related notions of linguistic proficiency, standards, models and

    *  critical evaluations of language policy and its implementation.
