The L2 Journal is an open access, fully refereed, interdisciplinary journal that aims to promote the research and the practice of language learning and teaching. It publishes articles on all aspects of applied linguistics broadly conceived, i.e., second language acquisition theory and practice, second/foreign language pedagogy, bilingualism and multilingualism, language and technology, curriculum development and teacher training, testing and evaluation. The L2 Journal unites the academic rigor of the traditional scholarly review process with the benefits of open-access publication. Timely publication and wide electronic distribution are made possible by the University of California's eScholarship Digital Information Repository.
The journal is supported by the Berkeley Language Center, and is available free of charge on the internet.
