  1. That’s a useful list. You could consider adding some more of the newsletters / magazines of organisations – e.g.

    TESOL Connections / Section Newsletters
    http://tesol.org/read-and-publish

    IATEFL Voices
    http://www.iatefl.org/iatefl/iatefl-voices

    IATEFL Special Interest Group Newsletters
    http://www.iatefl.org/special-interest-groups/list-of-sigs

    Most national associations have newsletters & sometimes journals – here’s are the details for NZ:

    TESOLANZ Newsletter
    http://tesolanz.org.nz/Site/Publications/newsletter.aspx

    TESOLANZ Journal
    http://tesolanz.org.nz/Site/Publications/journal.aspx

    Thanks Martin, very useful. I had mentioned that, but only had the link for JALT. I’ll add these to the main list above soon.

  3. Rob says:

    I think it might be worth distinguishing between the types of thing you can get published in each place. For example, the feature articles in The Language Teacher actually go through a double-blind peer review process, and are almost always serious academic papers. Is that the case with articles in international ELT magazines? (Genuine question, I’m not sure…)

    A lot of SIGs are equally rigorous with their publications, and produce academic journals rather than magazines. If you’re trying to get jobs in universities, etc. then publishing peer-reviewed research papers is more important than publishing less rigorously-assessed articles, no matter where they appear.

    Hi Rob

    I did mention that in the workshop I gave on the topic last week, and it will be in the two articles that came out of that and this list.

    I didn’t know that about feature articles in The Language Teacher and SIGs, but my general point was that often teaching associations have both non-peer reviewed magazines and peer-reviewed journals, which is how I would generally define magazines and journals as EtP, MET etc are not peer reviewed and so are considerably lower in priority for people who want university jobs. Same is true of the reviews pages of journals, unfortunately, because that is the only parts of TESL-EJ and ELTJ that I’ve ever appeared in…

  5. Rob says:

    The Language Teacher is a weird one. They call themselves a “magazine”, but they’re a strange hybrid of academic and practical stuff. As far as I know, a feature article in the language teacher is considered about the same as a paper in the JALT Journal.

    I’m also going through the peer review process for a SIG journal at the moment, and it’s equally rigorous – two peer-reviewers plus comments from two editors. The journals can be stuck into a hierarchy of first-tier, second-tier, etc. but I don’t know where something like TLT would fit. A journal with its feet on the ground, or a magazine with its head in the sky?

    Just remembered that the one that mentions publishing for you academic sorts is already up:

  7. Eloise says:

    I know that http://www.arels.org.uk/ welcome guest posts! They welcome engaging, quality written articles about anything TEFL!

  8. Ryan O’Sullivan, The TEFL Academy says:

    These is an awesome list with extensive archives. [EDIT] is also a wonderful site which offers articles and supporting activities for TEFL

  9. alexcase says:

    The TEFL Academy are spammers, that’s what they are. I have therefore removed all links to your site, including the one I initially allowed. I also recommend that all readers avoid TEFL organisations like yours who spam sites.
