The second volume of the Dual Language Research and Practice Journal (DLRPJ) will be released in December 2017. DLRPJ is an online, open-access journal devoted to practical and theoretical issues in dual language and bilingual education in the United States and around the world.

“There will be articles that discuss pedagogy and schooling issues,” said Nahed Abdelrahman, an education administration doctoral student and assistant editor on the journal. “Volume II will include articles that discuss teacher pedagogical practices, students’ in-classroom motivation, and dual language models.”

Founded in 2015, the journal is published in English, but includes abstracts in Spanish, Mandarin, and Arabic, as these languages are commonly spoken by people globally. The journal editors plan to expand into other languages, including Vietnamese and Portuguese.

“I am happy to be a part of the Center for Research & Development in Dual Language & Literacy Acquisition’s journal, DLRPJ,” said Dr. Beverly J. Irby, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs in the College of Education & Human Development and journal editor. “This represents the only international journal targeted specifically toward dual language education.”
