AILA Review is the official journal of AILA, the International Association of Applied Linguistics. It is Scopus-indexed and addresses cutting-edge topics such as inter- and transdisciplinary issues in Applied Linguistics. Founded in 1989, AILA Review has always been an excellent publication platform for peer-reviewed contributions addressing socially relevant problems in which language learning, research, and practice play a key role.
Up to Volume 16, the journal was published by AILA itself. From Volume 16 onwards, AILA Review has been published by John Benjamins.
All articles are published under the Creative Commons license CC BY.
From Volume 34 onwards, AILA Review is published in two issues per volume: an open issue based on articles by scholars responding to open calls – and a special issue guest-edited by AILA Research Networks. AILA Review will be freely accessible to members of AILA.

AILA Review invites AILA members from all national affiliate organisations to submit proposals for the future issues of AILA Review. AILA Review is edited by AILA (International Association of Applied Linguistics) and published by John Benjamins, Amsterdam. It appears once a year and is a thematically oriented, guest-edited volume of 100-120 pages. It is distributed to nearly 6,000 AILA members world-wide.
Although any AILA member can propose an issue on any topic related to Applied Linguistics, with an emphasis on cutting-edge research, AILA Review is especially meant as a forum for publications coming from AILA ReNs (Research Networks).
AILA Review is a peer-reviewed journal and all issues will not only be reviewed by the guest-editor(s), the editor and editorial board, but also by external referees. Evaluation criteria are, amongst others, the relevance of the suggested topic, a solid research orientation, innovative ideas and methodological quality.
Proposals should include the following information:
- the title of the proposed issue
- the purpose of the proposed issue and its relevance
- the table of contents
- 300-word abstracts of all papers included, along with author name(s) and affiliation(s)
- a time schedule (deadline for first drafts of the papers, deadline for revised drafts, date by which the manuscript will be handed to the General Editor of AILA Review)
- suggestions for reviewers
The guest editor(s) is/are required to ensure that all papers comply with the Guidelines for Contributors of AILA Review and that the papers are properly checked for formatting and language. Depending on the guest editor(s)' preference, each issue should contain 6-8 articles, which will normally each be of 10,000 (8 articles) to 15,000 words (6 articles) in length, including tables and figures. This sets AILA review apart from the usual length of articles of 8.000 words in other journals and allows for a more detailed discussion of the volumes' topics.
Deadline for proposals: September 30 of the year before publication.
Proposals should be sent by e-mail to the Editor.
