Guidelines for Submissions to Language Magazine

Our readership is comprised of those who must stay informed on advancements in the language education arena. This includes language teachers, administrators, ESL and literacy educators, bilingual educators, teacher trainers, and program coordinators. We have a very wide readership in the United States and around the world from kindergarten through university levels to adult education and corporate training. Language Magazine is also available on newsstands.

The style of Language Magazine is American English. Our tone is professional yet approachable. Although the bulk of our readership is comprised of professional educators, the magazine is also read by policymakers, business people, students and interested parents, so try not to exclude any potential readers of your article. Most importantly, please be clear and succinct. Please include a short bio, including your academic title, your e-mail address (which will be published with your article, unless otherwise requested) and a phone number.

Quotations and References
If you are using quotations, identify the sources. Depending on their length, it may be necessary to obtain permission for them to be used, so please give full information. If you quote references, give full bibliographic information.

Length and Format of Articles
Articles should generally be 1500-2500 words in length. We do accept shorter or longer articles, but we suggest a query e-mail first if your article is shorter or longer. All articles must be original and not have been previously published.
It is probably a good idea to send a query e-mail first describing your proposed article in a paragraph to the editor. Articles should be submitted electronically in Word to [email protected]
We reserve the right to edit all articles for length and style. If there are questions or substantive changes, then we will communicate with you. We are not able to publish every article that is submitted.

Your article will be published on the understanding that the copyright in the article is retained by the author whilst granting Language Magazine full publication rights. The Publisher will not give permission to reproduce the article elsewhere without your permission, provided that you reply to any request within two weeks. Any application made to you to reproduce your article should be forwarded to the editor. Any fee received for the reproduction of the article will be shared 50/50 between you and the Publisher. If you wish to use the article again in a publication written or edited by you, you may do so provided that its original publication in Language Magazine is acknowledged.

Any article that is accepted for publication in Language Magazine may also appear on Language Magazine Online.
