About The FLTMAG

The FLTMAG is an open access quarterly practice-oriented online publication dedicated to the field of language technology founded in July 2012. In summer 2018, The FLTMAG became an IALLT publication. IALLT is the International Association for Language Learning Technology, a professional organization that provides leadership in the integration of instructional technology into the language classroom.

Our goal is to provide useful and practical information about technology integration in the classroom such as emerging technologies, interesting books, classroom projects, institutional initiatives, conferences and symposiums and language centers worldwide. We are a public forum promoting engaged and productive discussions around burning issues in the field of language technology in the U.S. and beyond. We welcome submissions on topics related to language teaching and learning and technology, including literature, culture, and film.

The FLTMAG‘s Review Process

The FLTMAG uses an open peer review / editorial review process. All submissions are reviewed by at least two reviewers. Some reviewers are from the Editorial Board of The FLTMAG, and some reviewers come from our pool of outside reviewers. Our review is an open review process, where the identity of both authors and reviewers is known. While there is a place for double blind peer review, we believe that open review works well for our journal because it encourages a kinder review process and has the potential to make connections between members of our community. If you would like to read more about our open access and open review policies, please read the article written by our founder, Edwige Simon, and our Editor-in-Chief, Shannon Donnally Quinn, called “Why We at The FLTMAG Are Embracing Open Access and Open Review“. Decisions about the acceptance of manuscripts are ultimately made by the Editor-in-Chief in consultation with the Editorial Board.
