The Journal of the National Council of Less Commonly Taught Languages, published annually by the Council, is dedicated to the issues and concerns related to the teaching and learning of Less Commonly Taught Languages. The Journal primarily seeks to address the interests of language teachers, administrators, and re-searchers. Articles that describe in¬novative and successful teaching methods that are relevant to the con¬cerns or problems of the profes-sion, or that report educational research or experimentation in Less Commonly Taught Languages are welcome. Papers presented at the Council’s annual conference will be considered for publication, but additional manuscripts from members of the pro¬fes¬sion are also welcome.
The submissions are evaluated using a double-blind peer review process. Each paper is sent to at least two reviewers and only those with two positive evaluations (accept or accept with changes) are included in the Journal. Each paper is assigned to at least one specialist of the language addressed in the paper and one “generalist”, i.e., an expert in other less commonly taught language. All references to the author(s) are removed before the submission is sent to the reviewers and all references to the reviewers are removed when their comments are sent to the author(s)
Besides the Journal Editor, the process of selecting material for publication is overseen by the Advisory Editorial Board, which consists of the foremost scholars, advocates, and practitioners of LCTL pedagogy. The members of the Board represent diverse linguistic and geographical categories, as well as the academic, government, and business sectors.
