Foreign Language Studies is an international journal published by the College of Foreign Languages and Literature at National Chengchi University (NCCU), which regularly publishes original studies in the fields of literature, linguistics, language teaching and cultural studies. We publish biannually in June and December.
We welcome submissions in traditional Chinese and any other languages. Authors writing in simplified Chinese should convert the language of their submissions accordingly. Authors are advised to consult the style sheet of this journal when preparing their manuscripts for submission.
This journal also welcomes book reviews and research notes. Book reviews comment on academic books published either in Taiwan or abroad. Research notes discuss specific topics or research methods. Book reviews and research notes should not exceed 3,000 words. This journal also accepts invited submissions. Each issue can accept at most one invited submission of book review or research notes.
Submissions are welcomed at all times and will be peer-reviewed. Authors must sign the ‘Foreign Language Studies Contributor’s Declaration Form’ and indicate that the manuscript has not been published elsewhere. The manuscript should not contain any self-identifying references. Submitted papers are reviewed by at least two independent reviewers. Both reviewers and author(s) remain anonymous throughout the double-blind review process. Please note that the author will receive the review result within 6 months, and should return the revised version of the accepted manuscript after proofreading. All accepted submissions should be formatted by the author(s) according to our style sheet.
Foreign Language Studies reserves the right to decide in which issue an accepted manuscript will be published. Submitted papers might be published in the next issue if the review process is delayed. Authors should sign the ‘Contributor’s Declaration Form’ to grant a non-exclusive free license to Foreign Language Studies, and the soft copy of their published works will also be included in NCL Taiwan Periodical Literature, Airiti Library, HyRead Journal, Taiwan Academic Citation Index (TACI), UDP Taiwan Journals Search, and YueDan Knowledge Base. Authors will receive both a hard and soft copy of the issue containing their work. We do not offer any monetary rewards to authors.
