  • 1.  Recurring CFP - Call for Papers - for the TESL-EJ, On the Internet section

    Posted 28-04-2020 04:08

    Greetings all,

    This is the latest installment of an ongoing Call for Papers for the OTI (On the Internet) section of the TESL-EJ. Submission deadline dates for the February, May, August, and November issues are the 15th of December, March, June, and September, respectively. 

    At this particular time, where many of us are utilizing the Internet even more intensively than before in our teaching and work with colleagues, OTI is particularly interested in articles relating to that experience, though submissions may be on any relevant topic.

    Submissions are being considered NOW for all upcoming issues. Articles are needed June 15 for the Aug 2020 issue, and thereafter every three months, and so on going forward. 


    TESL-EJ,, is a free refereed online journal on teaching English as a second language. It publishes every three months and has an ISSN #1072-4303. Copyright on all articles published by TESL-EJ rests with their authors.

    One of the regular features of the journal is the On the Internet column. OTI publishes scholarly articles of varying length, give or take around 5000 words, on various aspects of teaching languages utilizing the Internet. Vance Stevens has been editor of the On the Internet column since Dec 2002. Due to the frequency of publication, there is little backlog, and articles are typically published within 3 to 6 months of submission. 

    To give you an idea of the kind of articles published, issues going back to 1994 can be viewed on open access at

    If you would like to propose an article for the next or any upcoming issue of TESL-EJ / OTI, you may submit your work (only for OTI) directly to the editor, Vance Stevens, at

    Submission deadlines are early enough that, if necessary, your work can be accepted for editing in a formative manner, through iterative feedback loops. 

    This CfP may be shared; you do not have to be a member of any particular professional organization to publish in TESL-EJ.

    Thank you and I always look forward to reading your articles submitted.
