Apples - Journal of Applied Language Studies is a peer reviewed international electronic journal sponsored by the Centre for Applied Language Studies at the University of Jyväskylä, Finland. It publishes articles that share an applied, interdisciplinary orientation to issues of language in society. More specifically, the journal's areas of interest include multilingualism and multiculturalism, discourse studies, multimodal literacies and pedagogies, issues of identity, language assessment, language education and language education policies. (more..)
We particularly welcome manuscripts in new and emerging areas of research that critically reflect the challenges that practices of language use and education faces today in societies that are characterized by processes of change, ranging from those brought about by technological advancement to diverse global flows that affect social, economic and cultural practices and conditions. We encourage articles which bridge the gap between theory and practice, i. e. theoretical contributions which take into account also practical implications and vice versa.
