The main objective of Issues in Language Teaching is to provide an intellectual platform for national and international researchers to discuss their most recent findings related to language teaching. By doing so, the journal hopes to improve the status of the field in Iran and in the world and to find solutions to theoretical and practical problems the profession is faced with. To serve this purpose, researchers are encouraged to submit their unpublished, original, full-length papers for potential publication in the journal. 

The journal is set to publish original articles on a wide range of issues including;

  • Language teaching
  • Applied linguistics
  • Discourse analysis
  • EFL
  • Task-based teaching
  • Language learning
  • Language learning strategies
  • Bilingualism
  • Pedagogy
  • Language proficiency
  • Cognitive Language Learning
  • Vocabulary knowledge
  • Identity
  • Intercultural competence
  • Fluency and accuracy
  • Linguistics
  • Assessment

To let individual researchers and libraries have access to the most recent research findings in the field, the journal allows open-access to its articles. This journal utilizes the Magiran and Noormags preservation systems to create a distributed archiving system for individual and libraries and to permit libraries stakeholders to create permanent archives of the journal.
