    The National Foreign Language Resource Center and the Department of Second Language Studies of the College of Languages, Linguistics and Literature, University of Hawai‘i are pleased to announce their joint sponsorship of the online journal Reading in a Foreign Language, a scholarly international refereed journal founded in 1983 at the University of Aston, Birmingham, England. The journal moved to Hawai‘i in 2002 under the co-editorship of Richard R. Day and Thom Hudson and Reviews Editor Anne Burns, Macquarie University, Australia.  

    Reading in a Foreign Language has established itself as an excellent source for the latest developments in the field, both theoretical and pedagogic, including improving standards for foreign language reading. 


    This fully-refereed journal is published twice a year, in April and October. The editors seek manuscripts concerning both the practice and theory of learning to read and the teaching of reading in any foreign or second language. Reviews of scholarly books and teaching materials, conference reports, and discussions are also solicited. The language of the journal is English, but lexical citations of languages other than English are acceptable. From time to time, special issues are published on themes of relevance to our readers. 


    Solicit, send for review, and prepare for publication contributions for Reading in a Foreign Language and publish two issues per year (April, October) on the Internet.
