Call for Papers – Special Issue 2013
Empirical Perspective on the Implementation of the Common European
Framework of Reference and the European Language Portfolio

Final deadline for submissions: October 31st, 2012

The Canadian Modern Language Review (CMLR) invites manuscripts to be
considered for a special issue to appear in November 2013 focused on
research related to the Common European Framework of Reference for
Languages (CEFR) and the European Language Portfolio (ELP). To date
most of the published research has focused on the European context;
however, there is increasing interest in implementing the CEFR and the
ELP in other contexts, including Canada. In Europe, theoretical work,
case-studies and anecdotal reports suggest that the CEFR is a useful
descriptive scheme for analyzing second language learner needs, goals,
materials and outcomes and for orienting L2 assessment. Its companion
piece, the ELP, has been widely implemented, although mostly on a
small scale. For this special issue we seek a broad range of
contributions from researchers who report on empirical findings from
studies of the CEFR and ELP in relation to issues such as proficiency
testing, language policy, L2 teacher preparation, development of
teaching/learning resources, curriculum design, implementation and
assessment. We also seek research reports that document and evaluate
pedagogical innovations based on the CEFR and/or the ELP for the
“Focus on the Classroom” section of the special issue. The editors
welcome articles in English or French.

Submitted articles will be subject to the normal peer review process
of the CMLR. Please visit the submission guidelines at the following

and other aspects of submission: http://www.utpjournals.com/cmlr.

Submissions should be sent electronically through PRESTO:

Receipt of all manuscripts will be acknowledged via PRESTO.
