Apples - Journal of Applied Language Studies is on a summer break from June 20 to August 1, 2024, in order to give our editorial team, reviewers and authors a well deserved break to rest and refuel. We wish you a good summer, see you in August!


Apples - Journal of Applied Language Studies is a peer reviewed international Open Access journal housed by the Language Campus at the University of Jyväskylä in Finland. Apples transgresses disciplinary boundaries and invites submissions that broadly relate to issues of language in society. We welcome manuscripts from all areas and fields that discuss linguistic and discursive phenomena and their societal embeddedness, for instance by addressing in/equity, exclusion/inclusion, societal challenges and developments, or language rights. We also invite submissions that go beyond traditional academic genres and approach topics that align with our mission in creative ways or novel formats.

The working language of the journal is English but papers and other contributions can also be published in other languages. We only accept articles submitted through our electronic platform.  Apples- Journal of Applied Language Studies is a fully open access peer reviewed journal, and we do not charge any fees from authors or libraries.
