CALL FOR PAPERS
Information for Authors
This publication of articles based on the annual IATEFL-Hungary Conference is an opportunity for speakers and researchers to have their Conference talks published. The compilation is not a conference proceedings volume, but a carefully edited selection of research-based, double-blind, peer-reviewed articles. Speaker proposals that have been accepted for the Conference are not automatically and simultaneously accepted for publication. Speakers who are interested in having their talks published following the Conference should contact the editors concerning their submissions. All submitted manuscripts will undergo a three-stage process of editing and review: initial editorial comments, double-blind, peer-review comments, final editorial comments. This process may take several months and the volume is published the year following the IATEFL-Hungary Conference (e.g. talks given at the 2016 Conference in October will be published before the next conference in 2017).
This is an online compilation that is published on the IATEFL-Hungary website. There will also a limited number of printed copies available at the following IATEFL-Hungary Conference.
The readers of this publication are likely to overlap with the IATEFL-Hungary Conference participants, but the publication also aims to reach a wider audience. The readers the Conference compilation teach English at various levels and in a range of international and local contexts. They may be employed in primary, secondary and tertiary levels of education at either private or public institutions. Some of the readers may be teachers in training or novice teachers, while others may be experienced teachers, teacher trainers or researchers. Managers of ELT institutions, programmes and projects are also likely to be interested in the publication.
