The International Journal of Young Adult Literature (IJYAL) aims to foster original scholarship covering the theory, critical interpretation, literary history, and cultural production of young adult literature from all parts of the world. This new online open-access journal acknowledges the growth of the field of YA and takes it seriously as a subject of literary enquiry. Young adult literature is understood in broad terms, and all research investigating the literary or narrative qualities of other popular forms or media are welcomed.
IJYAL is now accepting submissions for its third issue, scheduled for publication in 2022. Articles of 7000-9000 words should be submitted by 25 October 2021. We particularly encourage researchers working beyond Anglo-American young adult literature and/or working outside of the UK and US to submit articles. We will consider original scholarship on all aspects of young adult literature, with possible critical approaches including but not limited to:

Change in languages over time seems to be an inevitable constant. All languages have undergone and, if not dead, are undergoing change. As Ferdinand de Saussure put it more than a century ago, “the linguistic river never stops flowing” (Course in General Linguistics, 1916). The English language has been no exception and topics addressing linguistic change have been—and continue to be—widely discussed from different areas or branches of linguistics, such as generative, historical, variationist or corpus linguistics. There is, however, much that still needs to be investigated.
The journal welcomes contributions that are qualitative and critical, and whose focus resides in the field of language change and variation in English. This may include state-of-the-art research on areas of linguistics across theoretical frameworks along with studies that approach language from both a diachronic and/or synchronic perspective.
A suggested, albeit not prescriptive, list of themes includes:

The upcoming ESSE Messenger issue will concentrate on both the role of language in creating gendered identities and alternative “discourses” that envisage the existence and possibility of plural and variable existences and worlds that challenge traditional sexed and gendered polarities.
The Winer 2021 issue of The ESSE Messenger is dedicated to the participants in the ESSE Doctoral Symposia. Therefore, participants are invited to send in submissions based on their doctoral thesis or on their doctoral research activity. As The ESSE Messenger is a peer reviewed journal, a report from the contributor’s doctoral programme coordinator is requested, recommending the article for publication. If the doctoral programme was graduated previously and there is no longer a coordinator involved in this activity, our team of peer reviewers will assess the submissions.
No specific theme is associated with this issue.
