Research papers (in Chinese or English)
Research papers should be between 6,000-8,000 words plus references, should be double-spaced, and conform to the latest APA style. They should preferably be empirical and synthesis studies. They should include the following sections: introduction, background (literature review), method, result and discussion. SCLT advocates studies using various research methods (i.e., qualitative, quantitative and mix-methods). All research papers should be unpublished and original. They should be submitted in Microsoft Word or compatible formats. They are subject to a double-blind peer review, which usually takes four months.
