The question of academic success and the factors that trigger it is a constant preoccupation of researchers in the fields of education, psychology, sociology, and even neurology. Oftentimes, they have been encumbered by the ambiguity of the term and, implicitly, by the relativeness of the extant definitions. More often than not, academic success is related to academic performance displayed in the student’s ability to reproduce acquired knowledge, by means of graded examinations or in intelligence tests. However, we are faced with the obvious fact that not all students who enjoyed academic success (as it is understood judging by the two aspects mentioned above) also get to social success.

Journal of South Texas English Studies (JOSTES)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 11, 2016

The Journal of South Texas English Studies is now welcoming submissions for its Fall 2016 issue, themed “Journeys: Literal, Metaphorical or Imaginary.” EXTENDED Submission deadline: November 11, 2016. ‘Journey’ is a word that evokes images and feelings of freedom, escape, newness, experience, and curiosity. Within English studies, a journey may be literal, requiring movement across borders and spaces; figurative journeys often develop the inner dynamic of a character; and whimsical voyages, on the other hand, take place in the mind—the ultimate creative, uncharted territory.
