-Figure captions

Ensure that each illustration has a caption below the figure. A caption should comprise a brief title (NOT on the figure itself) and a description of the illustration. Keep the text in the illustrations themselves to a minimum but explain all symbols and abbreviations used.



Please submit tables as editable text and not as images. Tables shall be placed next to the relevant text in the article. Number tables consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text and place any table notes below the table body. Be sparing in the use of tables and ensure that the data presented in them do not duplicate results described elsewhere in the article. Please avoid using vertical rules and shading in table cells.



Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). Any references cited in the abstract must be given in full. Unpublished results and personal communications are not recommended in the reference list, but may be mentioned in the text. If these references are included in the reference list they should follow the standard reference style of the journal and should include a substitution of the publication date with either “Unpublished results” or “Personal communication”. Citation of a reference as “in press” implies that the item has been accepted for publication.



Footnotes should be used sparingly. Number them consecutively throughout the article. Many word processors can build footnotes into the text, and this feature may be used. Otherwise, please indicate the position of footnotes in the text and list the footnotes themselves separately at the end of the article. Do not include footnotes in the Reference list.



If your electronic artwork is created in a Microsoft Office application (Word, PowerPoint, Excel) then please supply ‘as is’ in the native document format. Regardless of the application used other than Microsoft Office, when your electronic artwork is finalized, please ‘Save as’ or convert the images to one of the following formats (note the resolution requirements for line drawings, halftones, and line/halftone combinations given below):

-EPS (or PDF)

-TIFF (or JPEG): Color or grayscale photographs (halftones), keep to a minimum of 300 dpi.

-TIFF (or JPEG): Bitmapped (pure black & white pixels) line drawings, keep to a minimum of 1000 dpi.

-TIFF (or JPEG): Combinations bitmapped line/half-tone (color or grayscale), keep to a minimum of 500 dpi.

Our mission

In this advancing world of communication, science, and technology, research has its pivotal part and its contribution to any side of action course proves vital where conventional and unconventional exploration methodologies can play a significant role in the appreciation of multifaceted and circumstantial dynamics of scientific and experiential explorations. Thus, drawing upon the realm of linguistics, whether general or applied, we are to help researchers to have their share and to open the scientific horizons to improve performance in the field. Accordingly, the EFL Teaching and Learning Journal (EFLTLJ) is to screen high quality studies, innovative experimental and non-experimental investigations, context sensitive explorations comprising quantitative, qualitative, and mixed method studies that knowingly employ conventional and modern research design and statistical approaches and support the theory and practice. The EFLTLJ also welcomes other types of meta-analyses, applied research tutorials, annotations, clarifications, and evaluations of recent premises, practices, and articles, and editorials. To hold the line, combining content with technology, supported by operational efficiency, is what can turn information into knowledge. The EFLTLJ is a journal to boost knowledge that gives power to users and high-spots the theoretical and applied connections of findings. Therefore, the prospect it is pursuing is ‘Researchers can change the world for the better. Join us.’

As a final note, it is to remark that the EFLTLJ publishes the accepted articles only electronically through http://eflj.ub.ac.ir/, and this journal and the associated members do not admit any accountability for proclamations and views radicalized, socialized, and politicized by the authors of the articles published in this journal.
