The Learner Development Journal  ( is the online, open-access journal of the JALT Learner Development SIG. Published once a year, the Journal is devoted to practitioner-driven research, reviews, and interviews exploring learner development issues in second language education.The Journal represents a commitment to group-based professional development and shared exploration. It provides a forum to explore issues related to specific learner development themes in a collaborative and supportive environment. Each issue of the Journal contains six to 10 works of varying lengths related to the common theme, reviews of key texts, an interview with or a contribution from a key researcher in the field, and an introduction or conclusion written by the issue editors to provide an overview and context to the whole collection of work. Contributors will work with each other to read and respond to one another’s work during the research and writing process. We are especially interested in practitioner research, student participatory research, and co-authored works.
