Manuscripts considered for publication will be double-blind reviewed by two specialists in fields of study closely related to the submission, from the perspective of the submission’s contribution to understanding of theoretical and empirical issues associated with intercultural communication education. We strongly welcome submissions that deal with languages other than English. All submissions should include the following:

– A clear and specific title
– An email address for correspondence to be published with the article
– All graphics as separate JPG or GIF files at a resolution of at least 300 dpi
– A biodata of up to 50 words per author
– An abstract of around 250 words in length 
– The preferred academic or professional affiliation with the names of each author

Please note that all manuscripts must be in APA format throughout (including all citations and references).

Regular articles are expected to be 6000-8000 words in length (excluding abstract, references and appendices), and are expected to include original research based on solid methodology and sufficient background research. Regular articles will typically present an in-depth analysis of original empirical data which contributes to understanding of the complexities of intercultural interaction and issues surrounding the development of intercultural capabilities in educational and professional contexts. Purely theoretical articles are also welcome provided that they demonstrate sophisticated argumentation and generate alternative perspectives on key issues in intercultural communication education. Work which takes an interdisciplinary approach is encouraged.

Short articles are expected to be 3000-5000 words in length (excluding references and appendices), and should present insightful analysis and commentary on the implementation of intercultural communication education in particular contexts. For example, this might include discussion of new methods or curriculum for teaching intercultural communication as an academic discipline within higher education, case-studies of intercultural training in the international business arena, or teacher-led interventions to incorporate intercultural goals in language education etc. Please contact the Editor-in-Chief before submission if you are unsure of the suitability of your article.
