Heritage Language Journal

An online blind-refereed journal dedicated to the issues underlying the teaching and learning of heritage languages.

The Heritage Language Journal (HLJ), an online, blind peer-reviewed journal, was established in 2002 to provide a forum for scholars to disseminate research and knowledge about heritage and community languages. HLJ is published by the National Heritage Language Resource Center at UCLA. The journal seeks submissions focused on acquisition and pedagogy of heritage and community languages from any of the following perspectives:

  • applied linguistics
  • theoretical linguistics
  • sociolinguistics
  • language pedagogy
  • language policy
  • other relevant fields

HLJ is published three times a year, in April, August, and December.
