The Australian Journal of Language and Literacy (AJLL), the research journal of the Australian Literacy Educators’ Association, is produced three times a year. It is directed at Australian and overseas audiences whose research interests range from early childhood to adult literacy education, English as an additional language, Indigenous education and learners with diverse language and literacy needs.


The Australian Journal of Language and Literacy aims to:
• Keep readers informed about current national and international literacy research;
• Enhance understanding of language and literacy issues in relation to their wider educational and social contexts;
• Provide a forum in which literacy professionals from all settings can exchange and discuss ideas and practices relevant to their work;
• Examine and present research with a view as to how findings might be implemented in teaching and learning contexts;
• Present in-depth investigations of literacy practices and theories.
