About the Journal
Migration and Language Education is an innovative open access journal devoted to research intersecting two different dimensions, namely migration and language education. When a person migrates, it is particularly difficult to adapt to a host country unless s/he already has acquired its language(s). At the same time, the migrantsâ€™ linguistic assets have intrinsic relationships with the identities and communication cultures of the migrants and their families. Thus, immigration is naturally associated with various aspects of language education. This journal invites new and creative manuscripts that can discuss languages, language acquisition, identity problems, language policy, and social integration that are triggered by migration.
Manuscripts considered for publication will be double blind reviewed for their presentation and analysis of new empirical data using appropriate research methods, development of theories relevant to immigration and language education, development or refinement of language learning pedagogies, and discussion papers relevant to teachers and learners of languages at all levels. All manuscripts must be in APA format throughout (including all citations and references).

Regular articles are expected to be 6000-8000 words in length (excluding references and appendixes), and are expected to include original research based on solid methodology and sufficient background research. Note that all submissions to the journal must be original work that has not been published elsewhere. If we find that an article has been published previously elsewhere before being published in the Migration and Language Education without permission from both the editors of both the Migration and Language Education and the previous publication, the offending author(s) may be responsible for re-printing and re-distribution costs of that issue of the journal.
