Writing Successful Articles for TESOL Arabia Conference Proceedings and Perspectives

Call for Book Proposals

TESOL Arabia Publications would like to invite prospective editors to submit ideas for new TESOL Arabia sponsored publications. Proposals should focus on an aspect of educational theory or classroom practice of interest to teachers, administrators and/or teacher trainers in the Teaching English as a Foreign Language field in the Gulf Region – although exceptional proposals from further afield may be considered.

Such proposals should be for full length, multi-chapter publications that will adhere to standard academic practice in terms of length, quality, referencing conventions, etc.

TESOL Arabia will help with a call for papers through its website, conference and periodical publication. We will cover the publication costs and make arrangements to have the final volumes printed, bound and distributed to contributors. In certain circumstances limited editorial help can be provided.

Interested editors should submit their proposal to Publications Coordinator, Dr Wafa Zoghbor at for consideration of the TESOL Arabia Publications team.

We welcome proposals from first time editors as well as those with previous experience. Single, dual or multiple editorship will all be considered. Editors should be TESOL Arabia members at the time of the proposal.

Please note that submission does not guarantee acceptance.
