Publication Outlets in Foreign Languages and Literatures.
Cardenas, Karen Hardy; And Others
The purpose of this report is to examine scholarly publications on foreign languages and to ascertain what publication possibilities exist for research in language teaching. The study focuses on publications concerned with French, German, and Spanish, the languages most commonly taught in high schools, colleges, and universities in the United States. The study concludes with observations on the issue of publication outlets as it relates to the larger issues that the foreign language profession currently faces. It is suggested that the foreign language field continues to be dominated by traditional, literature-oriented scholars. The opportunities individuals interested primarily in languages and the teaching of languages have for publishing the results of their scholarship are few compared to opportunities for publications of literary research. By increasing the number of publications devoted to language teaching, language specialists will be encouraged to produce in their chosen field. (JL)
