Change of publisher
From 2006 to 2010, Monash University ePress published the Australian Review of Applied Linguistics online and in print, on behalf of the Applied Linguistics Association of Australia (ALAA). As of September 2010, Monash University ePress became an imprint of Monash University Publishing, wtih the decision made to discontinue this imprint as of 2011. This means that ALAA will publish the journal themselves, directly, as they had in the past. The staff of Monash University ePress would like to thank the editors and the Editorial Board of ALAA for their support over the years, and we wish them well as they take the journal into the next phase of its existence.

Aims and scope of the Australian Review of Applied Linguistics
The Australian Review of Applied Linguistics (ARAL) is the journal of the Applied Linguistics Association of Australia (ALAA). The aim of the journal is to present research in a wide range of areas, but in particular research that is relevant to the particular region of the world that it covers. The journal aims to promote the development of links between language related research and its application in educational, professional, and other language related settings.
Areas that are covered by the journal include first and second language teaching and learning, bilingualism and bilingual education, the use of technologies in language teaching and learning, corpus linguistics, discourse analysis, translation and interpreting, language testing, language planning, academic literacies and rhetoric.
ARAL is a peer reviewed journal. Research articles are reviewed anonymously by members of the editorial board and guest reviewers.
Print ISSN: 0155-0640
From volume 29 (2006) until volume 33 (2010), ARAL was been published online as well as in print by Monash University ePress on behalf of ALAA. Previous issues were published by ALAA itself, in print format only. From 2011, ALAA has resumed publishing the journal directly.
ALAA formerly published Occasional Papers and a special thematic issue of the journal knows as 'Series S'. These have not been published since 2005. Claims for any of these items for 2005 or earlier should be made through the the Secretary of ALAA.
Prior to 2006, two issues of ARAL were published each year as well as a special thematic issue known as 'Series S'. However, from 2007 the Series S publication was incorporated into ARAL itself, and so three issues of the journal were published each year: two regular issues and one thematic issue. There was no Series S publication in 2006.
