Call for 2012 Monograph Proposals
Modern Language Journal
Monograph/Focus Volume Series
Guidelines for Prospective Monograph Authors

The following guidelines should be used by authors submitting proposals for
the 2012 MLJ monograph. The Monograph (to be under 200 pages in length)
may treat any topic related to second language learning and teaching, that
is, within the scope of the MLJ. Both theoretical topics and extended
research studies are welcome. Preference will be given to topics concerning
languages other than English, although work in ESL and EFL will be
considered if it has implications for teaching other languages as well.

Monograph proposals should include the following:

1. In a detailed statement of purpose (5-7 pages double spaced, 12 pt.
font), include the following:
- The objective of the proposed monograph and an explanation of the unique
and significant contribution it makes to the field of second language
acquisition or foreign language pedagogy
- The language(s) addressed or illustrated and, if applicable, additional
languages to which the work would offer insights.
- A comparison/contrast with monographs that have covered the same or
similar topics, and an explanation of what sets your monograph apart from
- An explanation of how the approach taken in the monograph does or does
not represent a departure from, or extension of, conventional wisdom.
Explain how this monograph will contribute to the discipline.
- Other comments that reveal different, original, or interesting aspects of
your proposed project
- A sentence or two explaining why you are submitting your proposal to the
MLJ monograph series.
- If possible, a brief description of anticipated special production issues
such as:
o The number and type of illustrations, photographs, tables, maps,
glossary, appendices, etc.
o Whether they will require any special design considerations, copyright
permissions, etc.

2. A separate annotated outline (table of contents), including a short
narrative for each section that describes how that section contributes to
the monograph.

3. If you have a sample chapter, please include it with your proposal.

4. A list of suggested readers, including those who might have already
read the manuscript. Some of these readers may be contacted for review, but
additional readers will also be chosen.

5. Author(s) information: Your curriculum vitae, including publications,
selected talks, and offices held in professional organizations, as well as
contact information.

- Electronic files containing monograph proposals are due to the Editor of
the series (Barbara Lafford, blaffordasu.edu) by July 15, 2010. The
Editor will inform prospective authors of publication decisions by
September 30, 2010. The author(s) of the manuscript chosen will be sent
more detailed guidelines and a timeline for manuscript preparation for the
2012 publication date.

This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $65,000. This money will go to help 
keep the List running by supporting all of our Student Editors for the coming year.
