Language Policy contributes to the field's growth by publishing high-quality studies that help build a sound theoretical understanding of the subject area. The journal aims to contribute to the field by publishing high-quality studies that build a sound theoretical understanding of the field of language policy and cover a range of cases, situations and regions worldwide. A distinguishing feature of this journal is its focus on various dimensions of language education policy. It presents policies concerning the status and form of languages as well as acquisition policies pertaining to the teaching and learning of languages. It contains detailed accounts of promoting and managing language policy and research papers on the development, implementation and effects of language policy in all regions of the world and under different conditions. We welcome theoretical and empirical papers with sound qualitative or quantitative bases that critically explore how language policies are developed at local and regional levels, as well as on how they are enacted, contested and negotiated by the targets of that policy themselves.
