JoLLE is a peer-reviewed journal housed in the Language and Literacy Education department at The University of Georgia. JoLLE publishes two issues each year: one in the fall and one in the spring. Typically one issue is unthemed while one issue is aligned with the theme of that year’s JoLLE@UGA Conference (held each January or February). JoLLE understands “language and literacy” to include not only reading and writing, but other elements such as the social, cultural, and historical contexts of language and literacy learning and teaching; ongoing changes in communication tools and practices in the 21st century; and issues involving first and multiple language acquisition and use, regardless of semiotic systems involved. Submit all questions and inquiries about the journal and potential submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
JoLLE accepts submissions of the following:
- Manuscripts–Submit all manuscripts to email@example.com.
- Voices from the Field–articles from practitioners in any genre focused on any aspect of their work. These are typically shorter reflections on practice as teachers and teacher educators. If you want JoLLE to consider your manuscript as a Voices from the Field piece, please tell us in your initial email.

JoLLE, as an online journal, welcomes innovative use of digital sound, image, and other representation to accompany articles or as the centerpiece of publications. Contributors are encouraged to make use of data that is not possible to publish in print media for JoLLE submissions, including video or audio data from previously published work that is subjected to a new treatment for JoLLE readers.
