About the Journal

The ASEAN Journal of Applied Linguistics (ASJAL) is a journal of the Malaysian Association of Applied Linguistics (MAAL) that caters to applied linguistics researchers in Malaysia, the ASEAN region and beyond. It is published online annually, is blind-refereed and has an international editorial board. Its aim is to disseminate applied linguistics research carried out mainly in the ASEAN region and to encourage discussion and collaboration between applied linguists in the region and internationally.

ASJAL invites submissions of previously unpublished articles that address research in areas such as language policy and language education, social and political uses of language, minority and indigenous languages, language and identity, language technology and artificial intelligence, language pedagogy, language in professional practice and other applied linguistics topics. Interdisciplinary research articles are also welcome.
