Important Notice

The Journal of Teaching Language Skills (JTLS) is now Teaching English as a Second Language Quarterly (TESL Quarterly, TESLQ for short). This took effect from the Fall 2021 issue.

Teaching English as a Second Language Quarterly is a quarterly open-access double-blind peer-review journal that publishes original articles of high scholarly nature. This journal will accept scholarly articles written by national or international authors only in the English language in the areas of  Language Teaching and Learning and its sub-disciplines. The journal is Q1, according to the ISC evaluation report.

There are no processing and publication fees for foreign authors.  

***

The journal's rank is A (الف) based on the latest evaluation (1401-2022) by the Ministry of Science, Research, and Technology.  

 In 2015 the Board of editors, in their meeting, decided to revert to the old volume numbers of the Journal of Social Sciences & Humanities of Shiraz University (TESLQ is an offshoot). This is to save the excellent record of the old journal.  This has taken effect from our spring 2016 issue (35/1).
