Editorial policy and goals
Trabalhos em Lingüística Aplicada is a biannual publication of the Department of Applied Linguistics of the Institute of Language Studies at Unicamp, and it has been published since 1983. Its aim is to disseminate unpublished works in the field of Applied Linguistics concerning issues involved in the teaching and learning of native and foreign languages, translation, identity, and other forms of asymmetrical interaction.
The Journal also publishes translations with commentary of current articles and reviews of recent and relevant work in the field. Besides presenting the work to the reader, reviews must discuss it with originality and depth. Only one review and one translation will be published in each issue. In order to compose the special issue, which is published in December, the Editorial Board encourages authors to propose a theme. Such contributions are also peer-reviewed, though their submission/acceptance proceedings and deadlines are different from those used for the other articles which comprise the Journal.
The Journal’s editorial policies allow the submission of papers written not only in Portuguese, but also in English, French or Spanish. Two abstracts are required: one in the original language of the article (Portuguese, English, French or Spanish), the other in English, as specified in the “publishing norms”. For articles written in English, the second abstract should be in Portuguese. Each abstract must be followed by a list of three keywords in the language of the abstract. Authors are entitled to receive one printed copy of the issue in which their article is published.
Before submitting a proposal, the authors must be in agreement with the main requirement of the Editorial Team that the article submitted is original and has not been previously published.
Articles submitted for publishing are anonymously evaluated by two qualified reviewers from the Editorial Board and/or by ad hoc consultants. Only articles also approved by the Journal's Editorial Team are to be published, providing that the author complies with the recommended corrections and suggested alterations.
The criteria for evaluating articles are:
Articles submitted for evaluation must be sent electronically at the website http://www.iel.unicamp.br/revista/index.php/tla/about/submissions, where the procedures for author registration and the remission of the corresponding article for evaluation will be specified. The author must fill in the complete form, including institution, city and country. All communication regarding the evaluation process of the article will be done online through the same system.
