CFP: Journal for Distinguished Language Studies

Deadline: June 30, 2020

The Journal for Distinguished Language Studies (JDLS), founded by the Coalition of Distinguished Language Centers under the direction of Dr. Betty Lou Leaver and Boris Shekhtman in 2002, has transitioned to a new publisher, MSI Press LLC.

Our plan is to publish a bridge issue covering the years 2011-2020, when the journal was in hiatus as a result of the previous publisher experiencing difficulty in funding publication of the journal. Following the bridge issue, the JDLS will move to regular annual publication.

JDLS is a refereed volume and the only journal to focus exclusively on the highest levels of language achievement: that is, native-like or near-native. This level is labeled “distinguished” by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) and “Level 4/advanced professional proficiency” by the Interagency Language Roundtable (ILR). Descriptions can be found at the ACTFL and ILR websites.
