EnglishUSA Journal Transitions to Publication at Syracuse University Libraries
EnglishUSA Journal, a peer-reviewed online journal that focuses on theory and practice in teaching English as a second/foreign language, is now published on SURFACE, Syracuse University’s open access institutional repository hosted by Syracuse University Libraries. EnglishUSA Journal co-editors are David Lind, Director of International Programs at Syracuse University’s College of Professional Studies, and Alison Camacho, from the English Language Programs through the U.S. Department of State.
The benefits of hosting the EnglishUSA Journal on SURFACE include searchability of keywords, including through Google Scholar, tracking on article downloads, individually assigned Digital Object Identifiers and open access scholarship so that content is accessible to everyone. The Journal is for readers interested in English language teaching, administration and leadership at the post-secondary level. It is published twice annually and features practical and theoretical content primarily focused on programs that serve language learners in proprietary programs or university-governed institutions.
“We’re delighted to host this important journal on SURFACE,” said Dylan Mohr, Open Scholarship Librarian at Syracuse University Libraries. “Collaborating with the EnglishUSA Journal team and our colleagues at the English Language Institute at Syracuse University ensures that anyone interested in sharing best practices, addressing current issues and presenting research around English language programs at the post-secondary level will be able to find and access content.”
“SURFACE makes available a suite of features which will allow authors and editors of the EnglishUSA Journal to track readership globally. This will help gauge the level of interest in the different topics covered. Having the journal associated with Syracuse University Libraries raises the profile of the publication,” said David Lind.
