Cambridge to publish Language and Cognition from 2014

language-and-cognition.jpgThe UK Cognitive Linguistics Association (UK-CLA) and Cambridge University Press recently announced that Cambridge will publish the UK-CLA journal Language and Cognition from 2014.

Language and Cognition is the only journal of its kind to focus explicitly on the relationship between language and cognition and is a venue for the publication of high quality, peer-reviewed research.

Appearing quarterly in print and online, the journal publishes research from the full range of subject disciplines, theoretical backgrounds, and analytical frameworks that populate the language and cognitive sciences.

Language and Cognition will be joining Cambridge’s world-leading portfolio of linguistics books and journals. The journal will also benefit from the sophisticated functionality of Cambridge Journals Online including online before print FirstView publication, online manuscript submission and peer review systems.

Professor Vyvyan Evans, President of the UK Cognitive Linguistics Association and General Editor of Language and Cognition, commented: "There is no journal quite like Language and Cognition. It is a truly transdisciplinary forum for researchers exploring the language-cognition interface. It is open to scholars in areas from neuroscience to sociology. It has a wonderfully dedicated editorial team, who, having presided over its birth in 2009, are today celebrating its next step: joining the Cambridge University Press family of journals, where we hope it will continue to thrive, engaging more authors and readers than ever with its innovative brand of non-ideological, rigorous, multi-modal research into the human linguistic and communicative faculty."

Ella Colvin, Cambridge University Press Director of Publishing, Social Sciences, said: "We are delighted that our highly regarded language and linguistics journals list will be strengthened with the addition of Language and Cognition. This new partnership presents the opportunity to apply our publishing strengths across disciplines to maximise the exposure and visibility ofLanguage and Cognition to a worldwide audience."

Volume 6, the first to be published by Cambridge, will include a special issue on interaction in language and cognition.

Call for papers, Journal of NELTA 2013

np.pngThe editorial board of the Journal of NELTA (Nepal English Language Teachers’ Association) would like to invite contributions for the 2013 issue.

First published in 1996, the Journal of NELTA is a premiere publication of Nepal English Language Teachers’ Association (NELTA). This journal has been an integral part of NELTA’s mission for ‘enhancing the quality of English language teaching and learning through professional networking, supporting and collaboration’.

It is also a means towards achieving NELTA’s goal of providing a ‘forum for exchanges of ideas and experiences at national, regional and international levels’.

The editorial board would like to invite contributions for the 2013 issue of the journal. Contributors are encouraged to make their work relevant to classroom teaching as well as to serve the larger purpose of creating or promoting ELT discourses at local, national, and regional contexts. Contributions that deal with ELT theories and methods will serve the professional community only to the extent that they are situated in the authors' own practices and/or in the contemporary educational and social contexts. The objective of this volume is to gather the voices of teachers, scholars, and educationists who are best able to define and advance the conversation and practice of ELT.

Manuscript must be submitted as an email attachment accompanied by a well-written cover letter to the editorial address: neltajournal@gmail.com or neltaeditorialboard@gmail.com. All enquiries and communication related to the articles for the Journal of NELTA should also be sent to the same email address.
