Occasionally, paper acceptance or rejection emails sent by the journal may be caught by spam filters. Most modern email software includes a spam or junk folder, and it is worth checking this from time to time.

If you find emails from our journal in your spam or junk folder, you can tell your mail program that it is not spam by hitting the "Not spam" or "Not junk" button, and most mail programs will learn from this and will be less likely to misclassify subsequent emails.

Continuous Publishing and Fast Review Process

British Journal of Applied Linguistics (BJAL) publishes articles on a continuous basis. Articles are published in the current issue as soon as they are peer-reviewed, accepted, copyedited, and proofread, allowing a steady stream of informative quality articles. The journal then archives the articles within 2 issues: January-June; July-December. In the continuous publication, articles may be submitted at any time. They still undergo the same process of peer review and preparation, but this can begin right away and ends as soon as the article is ready.
