As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
We are pleased to announce that one of Language Policy’s research papers has been awarded the 2019 TIRF James E. Alatis Prize for Research on Language Planning and Policy in Educational Contexts
