 Aim and Scope

The NYS TESOL Journal is the official journal of the New York State Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (NYS TESOL). It is a refereed open-access, academic journal published biannually each winter and summer. Articles in the NYS TESOL Journal focus on theory, research, pedagogy, and educational policy related to the teaching of English to speakers of other languages, including U.S.-born bilinguals, “generation 1.5” students, immigrants, and international students.. Articles may focus on any educational level, from kindergarten to university, as well as on adult school and workplace literacy settings.

Guidelines for Submission

Submission is open to all; you do not need to be a member of the NYS TESOL association to submit a manuscript. The editorial board seeks submissions in the following four categories:

Feature articles (20-25 pages inclusive of references, tables, and figures): These articles focus on theory, research, pedagogy, and/or educational policy. Feature articles should show evidence of rigorous scholarship, make an original contribution to the field of education, contain ample references, and provide readers with insights relevant to TESOL learning and teaching. Feature articles should be driven by pedagogical problems and research questions that address those problems. We welcome all methodological research paradigms; in all cases we ask authors to keep the literature review and methods sections succinct and emphasize the findings and the applications of those findings to pedagogical issues. Articles that contain statistical analysis must be accessible to a general audience of educators. All submissions are blind peer reviewed.

Brief reports (8-10 pages inclusive of references, tables, and figures): These articles are briefer and less formal than feature articles. Based on current or emergent trends in the field of TESOL, brief reports include (a) pilot studies, (b) research in progress, or (c) policy briefs. All submissions are blind peer reviewed.

Materials (book and online resources) reviews(2-6 pages inclusive of references): The NYS TESOL Journalwelcomes submissions of ESOL resources in print, e-version or web-based. The materials should be related to teaching practices. Currently, we encourage prospective reviewers to select the materials for review and check with the Editors for relevance. If you wish to review resources on technology or anything related to e-sources or software, please be mindful of the most recent editions or observe the up-to-two-year publishing date. Reviews are typically 2-4 pages long, double-spaced. All submissions are peer-reviewed.

Readers’ comments and views (2-4 pages, inclusive of references): The Journal welcomes comments from the readership on published articles in any of the following formats: a reflection, reaction, short analysis, brief critique, or a personal experience connected to any of the article topics or issues. It should be no more than 500 words in length. This contribution is editor-reviewed.

 Manuscript Format

 NOTE: Allow 8-12 weeks for manuscript status notification (after the close of the Call for Submissions).

  • Manuscript style and bibliographic references should conform to the conventions specified in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th Edition.
  • All submissions should be double-spaced in 12 point Times New Roman font, with 1 inch margins on all sides.
  • The page number and running head should be placed in the upper right-hand corner of each page.
  • The title page should be submitted as a separate document and include each author’s name, affiliation, address, telephone numbers, and email address.
  • Submitted manuscripts should begin with a 150-word abstract, with a list of 5 keywords, numbered as page 1.
  • The review process is anonymous so authors should not be identified anywhere within the body of the article. Authors should also remove their names as authors of the document and all identifying information in “properties.”
  • One submission per author per call, please.

Submission Procedure

To submit a feature article, a brief report, a review, or a reader’s comment, visit our online submission system at http://journal.nystesol.org/submitnow2.html. This is the preferred method of submission.

If you cannot use the online submission form, please send an email with the manuscript (with no identifying author information) and a separate title page with identifying information to the Editors at [email protected].. If submitting via email, please make sure your subject line clearly indicates what type of manuscript you are submitting (i.e., “NYS TESOL Journal submission/Feature article” or “NYS TESOL Journal submission/Materials review”).

It is understood that manuscripts have not been previously published and are not currently under consideration for publication elsewhere.

Review of manuscripts will begin after the call for proposals deadline. In some cases, accepted manuscripts may undergo several rounds of substantive revision before they are ready for publication.

When a manuscript has been formally accepted for publication, authors will be required to submit a complete electronic copy of the final version, including all figures, charts, tables, appendices, and illustrations.

 Editorship and Ethics

  • NYS TESOL Journal reserves the right to make non-substantive editorial changes for style, clarity, and consistency.
  • For Special Themed Issues, the Journal reserves the right to make the final article selection for the publication.
  • We expect all reviewers, editors and authors to consider fair practices and to inform the Journalof any possible conflict of interest situations.

Open Access Statement

The NYS TESOL Journal is a peer-reviewed, open access academic journal. We believe that open access to scholarship is critical for scholarly communication. For that reason we pledge to make all articles freely accessible and we allow authors to self-archive their publications on the web. Further, in the tradition of open-access journals, the NYS TESOL journal makes all articles freely available to readers. Authors are never charged any article processing fees.

Call for Proposals: NYC ABE 39th Annual Conference

New York City Consortium for Adult Basic Education

39th Annual Conference

Saturday, April 21, 2018 

High School of Fashion Industries in Manhattan

Our theme this year: Empower Adult Educators, Empower Adult Learners.

Interested presenters should email proposals as attachments to [email protected] by February 9th.

You can also check out our web site: http://nycabeconsortium.weebly.com/

Since 1978, the ABE Conference has served the diverse professional development needs of current and future adult educators in the areas of BE, CTE (Career & Technical Education), ESOL, ESL Literacy, High School Equivalency (HSE), and US Citizenship. New York City’s adult literacy programs continue to be a motivating force for the city’s vast population of adult learners seeking to achieve language proficiency or to gain literacy and numeracy skills leading to an HSE credential that opens pathways to further education and training, better jobs, and a more active role in their communities. The Consortium, a non-profit organization composed of educators and volunteers from leading New York City adult education providers, remains at the forefront of efforts to meet the challenges facing the field.

To develop and thrive, adult educators, volunteers and future adult educators need a professional support network. We all benefit from engaging in dialogue, sharing creative teaching practices, and building partnerships with colleagues throughout the city and beyond. The ABE Conference provides a forum for showcasing the tremendous creative energy and talent of practitioners while addressing critical issues that deeply impact adult education students and educators alike.

In 2018, we plan to offer workshops in the following formats:

  • Presenter-centered/traditional model
  • Inquiry-based/participant-centered
  • Panel Discussion/Educators’ Roundtable

In addition to requesting your participation in the conference, the NYC Consortium for ABE encourages you to submit proposals for presentations that highlight outstanding and innovative practices and illuminate relevant issues affecting our field. Successful workshops have actively involved participants in group activities, used audio-visual aids, and incorporated open discussions into their design. We welcome collaborative submissions.
