Founded in 2012, the International Journal of Applied Linguistics and English Literature (IJALEL) is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed international journal, published both electronically and in print. It covers the latest developments in the broad areas of English language, linguistics and literature. With its uniquely broad coverage, the journal offers readers free access to all the important new research relevant to language and literature. While IJALEL strives to maintain high academic standards and an international reputation through the suggestions of the international advisory board, it welcomes original, theoretical and practical submissions from all over the world. The audience includes, but not limited to researchers, managers and operators for languages, literature and linguistics as well as designers and developers.
