Peer-Reviewed Articles: Authors Guidelines

The peer-reviewed articles are a new type of FLTMAG publication. We are looking for rigorous action research articles written for somebody who does not have a research background.

REVIEW PROCESS

We will use a double-blind review, which means that author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process. Your article will be assigned to two reviewers who will decide whether you paper is Accepted with Major Revisions, Accepted with Minor Revisions, or Rejected. We might also offer to publish your submission as a non-peer reviewed FLTMAG article or feature article.

STYLE

The FLTMAG follows the APA style (6th edition)

LENGTH

5000 to 6000 words. Note that this is significantly less than the average academic article which is around 11 000 words.

  • Uses of new technologies or novel ways to use existing tools;

RIGOR
