Research Publication

The Asian Journal of English Language Studies (AJELS) is the official journal of the Department of English of the University of Santo Tomas (UST), the oldest university in Asia. It is a peer-reviewed journal that aims to provide current literature to those concerned with research in the realm of English language studies and English language teaching and learning, either as a second or a foreign language.

AJELS annually publishes articles primarily concerned with the following: (1) the theories that underpin English language acquisition, teaching, and learning; (2) the contentious issues relevant to the international and intranational use of English; and (3) the structure of English. Thus, the journal features empirical and descriptive studies marking significant academic and practical advances in the fields of theoretical linguistics, sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, multilingualism, stylistics, language and the law, language education, and language policy.
