Volume 15, Issue 16, 2010
Call for Papers
NIDA Journal of Language and Communication is the official refereed journal of the Graduate School of Language and Communication at the National Institute of Development Administration (NIDA), Bangkok, Thailand. Its purpose is to disseminate information of interest to linguists, applied linguists, communication scholars, discourse analysts, rhetoricians, translators, literary scholars, language teachers and practitioners, and others interested in language and communication. Recently, the Journal has been selected among Thai leading humanities and social science journals to receive a full journal grant from the Office of the Higher Education Commission of Thailand, enabling publication of two issues (one in English, one in Thai) per year with their nationwide distribution to most university libraries all over the kingdom. The English issue publishes original scholarship for both local and international readership on all practice-oriented linguistic standpoints, and on communi!
cation as a theory, practice, technology, and discipline of power, especially in applied contexts.
NIDA Journal of Language and Communication welcomes research papers as well as academic articles which explore and/or investigate the areas of language, communication and the interplay between language and communication (defined broadly). Humanistic in its orientation, the Journal endeavors to develop better understanding of the forms, functions, and foundations of human interaction. It is not restricted to particular theoretical or methodological perspectives, and publishes manuscripts and book reviews that will be of interest to scholars, researchers, teachers, practitioners, and students across the linguistics, applied linguistics, and communication fields. Interdisciplinary in nature, the Journal provides a forum for scholarly studies in linguistics, sociolinguistics, communication, rhetoric, language teaching, pragmatics, discourse studies, media studies, cultural studies, literary studies, gender studies, translation studies, applied linguistics and other areas of ling!
uistics and communication research.
Peer Review Policy
Manuscripts should address, but need not be limited to, issues that are significant to the above-mentioned areas of language and communication, and should make an important, substantive contribution to existing or emerging bodies of knowledge. Research accessible to both scholarly audiences and the learned public is encouraged. All manuscripts submitted for publication to NIDA Journal of Language and Communication are initially reviewed by the Editor for appropriate content and style. If a manuscript is clearly outside the scope of the journal areas, its author(s) will be notified, but the Editor reserves his/her right not to return such manuscript. If approved by the Editor, manuscripts are then reviewed by one or two anonymous reviewers. The Journal uses either single-blind or double-blind review process, depending on the nature of the submissions. Reviewers are chosen by the Editor based on their expertise with a submitted manuscript's topic, methodology, and research foc!
i. On special occasions or in special editions, the Editor may invite authors with a particular expertise to submit manuscripts. In such cases, the publication decision rests with the Editor. Such manuscripts are designated as "invited".
Manuscripts submitted to the journal must conform to the stylistic guidelines prescribed by the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA), 5th edition (2001). Submitted manuscripts must be typewritten, double-spaced, and in 12-point standard font. In very rare cases, a style internationally accepted might be employed, but not encouraged. Papers should not exceed 30 pages (A4 or letter size), exclusive of tables and references, nor be under consideration by any other publishing outlet at the time of submission. By submitting to the journal, each author maintains that he/she will not submit the manuscript to another outlet without first withdrawing it from consideration for the Journal. Each submission must be accompanied by an abstract of no more than 200 words and a bionote or author identification paragraph of 50-150 words. A separate title page should include (1) the title and identification of the author(s), (2) the address, telephone number, and !
e-mail address of the contact person together with his/her institutional affiliation(s), and (3) data pertinent to the manuscript's history. All references to the author(s) and institutional affiliation(s) should be removed from the text of the manuscript, leaving only the title and the abstract on the first page. Authors should submit an electronic copy of the manuscript and its separate title page (containing authors' contact information) in Microsoft Word as an email attachment to all members of the editorial team whose emails are presented below. Hard copy manuscripts may be submitted to the Editor by mail to the institutional address at the end of this page.
Complete submissions are welcome all year long. However, to receive full consideration for Volume 15 Issue 16 (June 2010), all completed submissions should be received by April 29, 2010. Successful contributors will receive up to 5 copies of the journal in which their articles are published. Their contributions are guaranteed to reach nationwide audiences in Thailand, and relatively limited groups of audience in Southeast Asia and the rest of the world.
