Dear All

First published in 1996 NELTA Journal is a premiere publication of Nepal English Language Teachers’ Association (NELTA). This journal has been an integral part of NELTA’s mission for ‘enhancing the quality of English language teaching and learning through professional networking, supporting and collaboration’ . It is also a means towards achieving NELTA’s goal of providing a ‘forum for exchanges of ideas and experiences at national, regional and international levels’. 

The editorial board would like to invite contributions for the 2014 issue of the journal. We encourage contributors to make their work relevant to classroom teaching as well as to serve the larger purpose of creating or promoting ELT discourses at local, national, and regional contexts. Contributions that deal with ELT theories and methods will serve the professional community only to the extent that they are situated in the authors' own practices and/or in the contemporary educational and social contexts. The objective of this volume is to gather the voices of teachers, scholars, and educationists who are best able to define and advance the conversation and practice of ELT. 

Here are some broad areas that contributors can consider for situating or relating their article:  

·   Innovative practice: works that describe and explore how authors have developed or adapted any innovative methods or practices in ELT

·   Innovative theory: works that discuss or interpret ELT theory critically from local/regional perspectives,

·   Establishing a context: works that raise new issues of ELT that deserve the attention of the professional community, government, or society, (e.g. : 'Reconceptualizing Teacher Education in Nepal')

·   Success story: scholarly articles that narrate and reflect on successful implementation of ELT theory, method, or practice,

·   Any other ELT subjects that you deem relevant to ELT professional community. 

Articles might fall under following genres or types:

·   Data-based empirical studies: articles based on the field work on issues of ELT, language education, teacher development or training, language testing and other relevant issues of language teaching. Because local practices have been relatively little researched outside the university context, scholarship that represents this area will get high priority for the publication.

·   Knowledge-based perspectives: articles that articulate a comprehensive and critical discussion of innovative ELT concepts.  Such articles must present the author's clear voice on the perspective that is of interest to the readers in Nepal.

·   Action research and teacher reflections: articles coming directly out of the classroom teaching or teacher's own reflection of his/her teaching. These can be stories in the form of narrative descriptions or they can follow the typical format of cyclical action research reports.

·   Articles on classroom practice: articles that are directly useful for teachers in the classroom e.g., tips for teaching particular skills/aspects of language, lesson plans, tasks for teaching poetry.

·   Book reviews: review of recently published ELT books that are of professional significance to the readers. Reviews should generally provide a short introduction of the author and the purpose of the book, its descriptive summary, followed by its evaluative comments and its significance to the researchers and practitioners in Nepal. Reviews should not exceed 1,500 words including references.

Submissions must strictly follow the guidelines provided herewith. Please take full advantage of the guidelines which also include details of the publication process. Manuscript must be submitted as an email attachment accompanied by a well-written cover letter to the editorial address: neltajournal@gmail.com or neltaeditorialboard@gmail.com . Cover letter email will include author's full name, institutional affiliation, title of the paper, and any other pertinent information you might want to include. 

Please feel free to forward this email to colleagues or to share it on appropriate mailing lists. 


All the best,



Dr Prithvi Shrestha
