Second Language Research is a central resource in the field, especially for cutting-edge work on linguistic and cognitive issues in SLA. It is clearly among our first-tier journals.” Professor Michael Long University of Maryland, USA

Second Language Research publishes theoretical and experimental papers concerned with second language acquisition and second language performance.

In addition to providing a forum for investigators in the field of non-native language learning, it seeks to promote interdisciplinary research which links acquisition studies to related non-applied fields such as:

  • Neurolinguistics
  • Theoretical linguistics
  • First language developmental psycholinguistics

Each volume includes one special guest-edited number focusing on a current theme and specially commissioned review articles addressing major issues in the field, forming a useful resource for the research community.

Recent review articles have dealt with:

  • The benefits of using on-line psycholinguistic testing techniques
  • The contribution of the study of specific L2s to the general development of the field
  • Recent research into the second language acquisition of aspect
